Abstract

Summary

The association of with epithelial cell cultures was studied by light microscopy, electronmicroscopy and viable counts. Associated organisms were engulfed by epithelial cells and sequestered from the cell-surface environment. Large numbers of organisms within epithelial cells appeared to induce cell lysis and release of . Such a mechanism occurring may assist to evade the bactericidal action of polymorphonuclear leucocytes and may explain some of the tissue damage seen in genital ulcers caused by .
