Caption: Streptococcus pneumoniae. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of S. pneumoniae, the bacteria that cause pneumonia. S. pneumoniae are classed as gram-positive bacteria. The cells are oval or lancet shaped, and are often arranged in pairs or short chains, as here. Although often found living harmlessly in the body, S. pneumoniae can also cause pneumonia. This life-threatening infection of the lungs usually occurs as a late complication of serious disease, when the victim's immunity is compromised. Pneumonia causes about 27000 deaths in the UK each year. Magnification unknown.
