Caption: Streptococcus pyogenes bacteria. Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through Streptococcus pyogenes bacteria. These gram- positive bacteria are rounded or spherical cocci that typically form chains. A cell wall (darker grey) surrounds the bacteria's cell contents. Healthy humans may carry S. pyogenes harmlessly in their throat or nose. Pathogenic strains however, cause skin infections such as impetigo, uterine infection following childbirth, and blood poison- ing (septicaemia). S. pyogenes accounts for the high incidence of sore throats, tonsillitis and middle ear infections (otitis media) in children. Magnification: x200,000 at 8x10 inch size.
