This scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed the presence of the spherical human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1), which here, had been co-cultivated with human lymphocytes. Note the lymphocyte in the lower left, and some of its extended pseudopodia. HIV-1 virions are seen on the surface of this lymphocyte. See PHIL 1843 for another view of this electron microscopic scenario.
