Transmission and scanning electron microscopic studies of rhinoscleroma.


Using both types of electron microscope, combined transmission and scanning electron microscopic studies were done on 6 patients with rhinoscleroma. The present work suggests the possibility of two types of organisms causing the disease: one type--being in the majority--was a rod-shaped bacillus measuring about 3 micrometers; the other type was a short, stout bacillus with terminal spiral cilia. The ultrastructure of these bacilli has been described. The advantages and limitations of each type of electron microscopy in the investigation of rhinoscleroma have been discussed.
