Streptococci in blood film

Streptococci in blood film

Streptococci, extracellular as well as intracellular (->), in a patient with finger gangrene. The patient died hours later despite intensive care treatment. If bacteria are detectable in a blood film, a blood film from a different patient should be stained with the same staining solution and be checked for bacteria to rule out contamination of the staining solution. If none are detectable, the detection of bacteria has to be reported to the treating physician immediately.
