Bacteria peligrosa; STREPTOCOCCUS PNEUMONIAE Este neumococo es un patógeno casi exclusivamente humano causante de infecciones como neumonía, sinusitis, meningitis y sepsis, entre otras, especialmente en ancianos, niños y personas con un sistema inmune comprometido. Es una bacteria no susceptible a la penicilina. Subida x Mery

Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria, SEM Caption: Streptococcus pneumoniae, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). S. pneumoniae are oval, Gram-positive bacteria. They are part of the normal human bacterial flora and are carried by many without causing infection. In individuals with compromised immune systems, they can infect upper respiratory tract, causing pneumonia. They may also infect other parts of the body, causing bacterial blood poisoning (bacteraemia) and meningitis.
