Re: I'm growing springs!

...I am not aware of a spirochete that gets
larger than a handful of microns.

The spring beast is larger than the field of view
that is almost half a mm wide.

I did find a mention of a double helix beastie in
the upper range in size was 30 microns. My beastie
is far larger than 30 microns..

like this one:

over a mm long..1,000 microns +
....this is getting out of the size range of
"normal" bacteria..something else is being observed..

to speak..]

An earlier report described the discovery of a micro-organism in the form of a
DOUBLE HELIX in human small bowel biopsies. Mucosal biopsies of the stomach and small bowel
obtained from patients with rheumatic diseases and dyspepsia by enteroscopy
and gastroscopy were fixed for scanning electron microscopy to investigate
the organism further. In 62% of biopsies, an organism in the form of a double
helix with bifid ends,{{ 5-30 microm }}long, was found lying free on the surface
of the mucosa. The organism has been demonstrated in the stomach, duodenum
and small bowel. Flagella were never seen to be associated with the organism.
In spite of its helical form, the organism lacks many of the factors
associated with spirochaete morphology. It is suggested that this,
as yet unnamed organism, may be found throughout the length of the
digestive tract. Its pathological significance is not known.
