Shigellosis is characterized by watery or bloody diarrhea (dysenteric) with mucoid stools. Shigellae are enteroinvasive and can cause necrosis of the colonic epithelium. Colonies of Salmonella typhi (typhoid bacillus) may appear green without dark centers Page 53 Figure 181 Salmonella species Giemsa stain of bone marrow aspirate of child with AIDS showing intracellular bacilli in macrophage.
Tuberculosis Figure 87 Mycobacterium tuberculosis Applegreen to yellow fluorescing bacilli in sputum smear stained with rhodamine—auramine. Granules represent individual colonies and are comprised of tightly interwoven bacilli in cord formation Page 33 Morphology The bacilli are either straight or curved to elongated rods, often occurring singly or banded together (cording) because of their lipidrich hydrophobic surface. tuberculosis requires enriched media for growth, as provided by LowensteinJensen (eggbased) and Middlebrook 7H10 and 7H11 (serumbased) media.
