The paper analyses literature data about the role of biofilms in the infectious diseases pathology, discusses issues of the structure of bacterial biofilms in biological objects and medicinal products, and provides information on the studying of scanning electron microscopy of biofilms developed by gram‑negative non‑fermentable bacteria Acinetobacter baumannii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in case of suppurative‑septic complications in patients with burn injury. Special regard is given to the features of biofilms structure and functions in vivo, and relationship between the develo pment mechanism and the course of the infectious process.
