Abstract

SUMMARY

Vertical ultrathin sections of a colony of serotype 1, -1 strain, which had been isolated from a patient with leukaemia, have been examined by electron microscopy.

In the micrographs, the ultrastructural appearance of in agar growth could be divided into two patterns. One was a mycelial growth form which was observed in the surface area and resembled growth in broth. The other was a pattern of binary fission observed in the deep area of the agar. These growth features differ from those of human mycoplasmas previously reported.
