Microorganisms are unique, specialized microbes that may exist in single cell form or colonies of cells. Each microorganism has a specific structure and morphology that is demonstrated with both the H and E and special stains.  Infectious diseases may include one or more microorganisms that are demonstrated with only special stains which represent "classic" staining entities and structures that are specific to certain infectious diseases. The microorganisms that will be discussed and demonstrated will include the type of fixation required, drawings and schematics to identify specific microorganisms, special techniques, some of the diseases and morphology.
