Abstract

The morphology of Legionella pneumophila grown within Hartmanella vermiformis was studied by electron microscopy. Different morphologies were observed, including a replicative form and a mature intracellular form, that had previously been reported in Hela cells. L. pneumophila was also detected within the cyst wall of the amoeba.
