Caption: Light micrograph of Streptococcus pneumoniae , a spherical, non-motile, non-sporing, Gram-positive bacterium with a tendency to form short chains. This sample was taken from human cerebrospinal fluid where it causes meningitis. The larger bodies are human cells. The species is both a normal commensal & a common pathogen of the human respiratory tract. It is the commonest cause of lobar pneumonia, bronchopneumonia & a series of other pneumococcal infections including pleurisy, peritonitis & meningitis. A polysaccharide capsule, secreted around the external surface, protects the cell from the immune system of the invaded host. Magnification: x100 at 35mm size.
