Description:Caption:
This is a 1975 transmission electron microscopic (TEM) image, photographed at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia, which confirmed the suspicion that the Rhodesian, now Zimbabwean, hemorrhagic fever patient had, indeed, acquired the Marburg virus, while traveling through that country. Note that in this particular section, the cylindrical Marburg virions were sectioned in various planes, which is why some are seen as longitudinal sections, i.e., lengthwise, while others are seen cut in a transaxial plane, i.e., cross-sectioned, and look circular.
