Description:Under the low-power magnification of 10X of a digital Keyence scope , this photograph depicts the colonial growth displayed by Gram-negative Haemophilus influenzae bacteria, which were cultured on chocolate agar medium, for a 48 hour time period, at a temperature of 37°C.
Haemophilus influenzae (including Hib) is a bacterium that can cause a severe infection, occurring mostly in infants and children younger than five years of age. In spite of its name, Haemophilus influenzae does not cause influenza (the "flu"). It can cause lifelong disability and be deadly. Invasive disease caused by Haemophilus influenza type-b can affect many organ systems. The most common types of invasive disease are pneumonia, occult febrile bacteremia, meningitis, epiglottitis, septic arthritis, cellulitis, otitis media, purulent pericarditis, and other less common infections such as endocarditis, and osteomyelitis. See the link below in order to learn more about Haemophilus influenzae.
