This transmission electron microscopic (TEM) image depicts an Orientia tsutsugamushi bacterium, formerly known as Rickettsia tsutsugamushi, as it was contained within an intact phagocytic vacuole of a mouse peritoneal mesothelial cell. Within the membrane-lined phagocytic vacuole, the rickettsia may still be coated by a plasma membrane derived from the previous host cell.
