Abstract

In 1957 the characteristic structures closely resembling the mitochondria of animal cells were revealed in the ultrathin sections of Mycobacterium avium by the authors (1). Subsequently, Yoshida and his co-workers (2) reported the similar structure in Mycobacterium tuberculosis var. hominis. The present authors also found it in Mycobacterium tuberculosis var. hominis H 37 Rv.
