Classification and external resources
MeSH D016908

Gram-positive bacterial infection refers to a disease caused by Gram-positive bacteria.

It is very important to recognize that this class is defined morphologically (by the absence of a bacterial outer membrane), and not histologically (by a purple appearance when stained), though the two usually coincide.

For example, infections by Mycobacteria are included in this class, though tuberculosis requires a special Ziehl-Neelsen stain stain, and leprosy usually cannot even be cultured.
