Scanning electron microscopical examination of gonococcal urethral exudate



Scanning electron microscopical examination of gonococcal urethral exudate



British Journal of Venereal Diseases 53(1): 31-39



The relationship of gonococci and [human] phagocytes in gonococcal urethral exudate was examined using a scanning electron microscope. Several stages in the phagocytic process were evident. These included pseudopodias, microvilli and simple attachment of gonococci to phagocytic surfaces. Epithelial cells, also a part of the exudate, were examined in this study. Parallels are drawn between this and other pagocytic systems. The technique provides excellent preservation of phagocyte-bacterial interrelationships and offers a means of investigating the nature of the resistance of Neisseria gonorrhoeae to phagocytosis.
