The study of the monolayer cell culture L-929, infected with strain CP-1 isolated from a patient with Reiter's syndrome, by means of scanning electron microscopy demonstrated that the release of chlamydiae from infected cells occurred in two ways: (1) by active ejection, probably as the consequence of the local rupture of the host cell, and (2) by more quiet "eruption" due to rupture in the plasmolemma . Elementary chlamydial bodies released from the cell had a spherical form, and reticular bodies had an irregularly spherical form, often with recesses and digitiform protrusions.
