Description:Caption:
This transmission electron microscopic (TEM) image revealed some cytoarchitectural changes in an unknown human-derived tissue sample associated with a Nipah virus infection. Nipah virus, a member of the family Paramyxoviridae, is related to, but not identical to Hendra virus. Nipah virus was initially isolated in 1999 upon examining samples from an outbreak of encephalitis and respiratory illness among adult men in Malaysia and Singapore. Its name originated from Sungai Nipah, a village on the Malaysian Peninsula where pig farmers became ill with encephalitis.
