Bacterial L-forms are among the most unusual creatures in nature. Once one has seen their strange habits and life style, one starts to work on L-forms with great enthusiasm because their existence in vivo and in vitro gives rise to more questions in classical microbiology, immunology and infection diseases.

Researching L-forms is like trying to catch a fish that appears on the surface and quickly dives back into the sea. It is almost impossible to catch it with bare hands. There are better chances of catching the fish by hook and line but chance is always powerful when efforts are joined and fishing nets are put into use.
