This image depicts two side-by-side photomicrographs revealing the intracellular etiologic agents of ehrlichioses. On the left the blood smear shows you the bacterial organism responsible for causing what used to be known as human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE), but is now referred to as human granulocytic anaplasmosis (HGA), Anaplasma phagocytophilum, formerly Ehrlichia phagocytophilum. On the right, the intracellular bacterial organisms responsible for causing human monocytic ehrlichiosis (HME), Ehrlichia chaffeensis, are revealed as well.
