Yersinia enterocolitica is enteropathogenic for man and rodents. Previous studies provided evidence that Y. enterocolitica invades the lymphoid follicles of the Peyer's patches (PP) of the small intestine. In this study Y. enterocolitica-induced tissue alterations of the follicle-associated epithelium (FAE) and the underlying PP tissue were analysed by scanning (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) as well as by conventional histological examination. For this purpose, an experimental… CONTINUE READING
