TEM of Cryptococcus neoformans

False-colour transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of Cryptococcus neoformans, showing a single, circular encapsulated yeast. C. neoformans causes cryptococcosis, a local infection that usually becomes generalized, its most common feature being a form of meningitis. The yeast may be isolated from soil although it is most often found in pidgeon droppings. The point of entry in humans is usually the lung, with spread to other organs & sites such as the meninges around the brain. Infection most commonly occurs in immuno- compromised persons where underlying conditions include sarcoidosis, Hodgkins disease and AIDS. Magnification: x 4, 500 at 35mm size

Meningitis Condition Disorder Health Care

This print showcases a false-colour transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of Cryptococcus neoformans, a circular encapsulated yeast. This particular organism is responsible for causing cryptococcosis, an infection that typically starts locally but can quickly spread throughout the body. Its most prominent manifestation is a form of meningitis. Cryptococcus neoformans primarily thrives in pigeon droppings and can also be found in soil. In humans, it usually enters through the lungs and then disseminates to other organs and sites, including the meninges surrounding the brain. Immuno-compromised individuals are particularly susceptible to this fungal infection, with underlying conditions such as sarcoidosis, Hodgkin's disease, and AIDS increasing their vulnerability. The magnification level of this TEM image stands at an impressive x4,500 when printed at 35mm size. The intricate details captured by Science Photo Library allow us to appreciate both the beauty and complexity of this infectious agent. While this photograph serves as a valuable resource for understanding diseases like cryptococcal meningitis and deep mycoses, it is important not to overlook its potential commercial use or associate it with any specific company. Instead, let us focus on its contribution to medical research and healthcare advancements in combating such disorders.
