Caption: Mycoplasma pneumoniae. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of scattered cells of Mycoplasma pneumoniae. The variety of cell forms visible on the lattice background is typical of mycoplasmas. They are the smallest cellular organisms known with a diameter of around 0.25 micrometres. While they are similar to primitive bacteria they lack a true cell wall and therefore display a variety of shapes. M. pneumoniae is one of the causes of pneumonia in healthy adults and accounts for many acute lower respiratory tract infections. Mycoplasma can also cause pneumonia in animals. Magnification unknown.
