Aeromonas hydrophila. Transmission Electron Micro- graph (TEM) of thin-sectioned cells of Aeromonas hydrophila bacteria. The layered cell wall is seen containing the cell contents. It is a Gram- negative rod-shaped bacillus. Aeromonas hydrophila is associated with septicaemia, pneumonia and gastroenteritis in humans. In particular it causes opportunistic infections in patients with lowered immunity, such as in cancer and liver disease. Aeromonas hydrophila has been isolated from urine, sputum, faeces and bile. It is resistant to many types of antibiotic including penicillin, but can be controlled with tetracyclins and genta- micin. Magnification: x120,000 at 8x10 inch size.
