STUART MUDD, M.D.
"L'infinité de la petitesse," in the words of Blaise Pascal, includes extensive areas whose submicroscopic dimensions render them inaccessible to light microscopy but which are accessible to exploration with the electron microscope. It is the purpose of the present article to survey very briefly these areas within the medical sciences. For those who wish to search the literature in whole or in part a bibliography is appended; preference is given to more recent and more comprehensive articles in which earlier studies are cited.
The electron microscope1 is a modern device for obtaining optical images of objects particularly of submicroscopic dimensions.
