Description:Magnified 15X, this image depicts the morphologic characteristics displayed by three Gram-positive, Actinomyces bovis bacterial microcolonies, of the strain, A-1109, which were cultivated, for a 48 – 72 hour time period, on an unknown culture medium.
Actinomyces spp. are normally found in the oral cavity, and are opportunistic pathogens usually seen as pathogenic only in immunosuppressed patients. Lesions involve long standing swelling, suppuration and the formation of an abscess, or granuloma.
