Figure

Twisted hair bacteria (Nocardia spp.) described by Edmond Nocard, from a bronchial alveolar lavage sample. Nocardiosis is an opportunistic infection, commonly associated with pulmonary disease. Nocardia are partially acid-fast, filamentous, branching bacilli (modified Kinyoun acid-fast stain using weak acid [0.5% sulfuric acid] for decolorization and methylene blue counterstain, original magnification x1,000.)
