Immunological aspects of infections part 26

Immune System

 

One must also consider that some bacteria sequester themselves in nonphagocytic cells where they are not exposed  to the immune system. An excellent example is M.tuberculosis, which can lie dormant for years inside a granulomatous, caseous lesion called the Ghon complex. Once ground up, live M.tuberculosis organism can be extracted from this complex.
