Figure 2: Microphotograph from a Gram-stained smear obtained from a bronchoalveolar lavage showing intracellular gram-positive diplococci. Culture from the bronchoalveolar fluid yielded Acinetobacter spp. at concentration >104 colony-forming units per mL. Acinetobacter-like Moraxella can be pleomorphic, and sometimes appear as gram-positive cocci. These organisms tend to retain the crystal violet stain and appear to be gram-positive
