We have established an in vitro model of long-term continuous Chlamydia pneumoniae infection in HEp-2 cells. Using transmission electron microscopy, we demonstrated the presence of spontaneous abnormal chlamydial inclusions similar in appearance to the persistent chlamydial forms induced in vitro by treatment with cytokines or antibiotics or by nutrient deprivation.
