What is the smallest microorganism that causes disease?

The smallest microorganism that causes disease is a prion. It is called an infectious particle. It appears to be a misfolded protein. It contains NO DNA or RNA. It causes "mad cow disease" and Creutz-Jakob disease plus scrapie in sheep and kuru in humans. None are curable and are always fatal. The smallest cellular microorganism that causes disease is a rickettsia. They are similar in size to the mitochondria of eukaryotic cells and both have very similar processes for ATP production. Rickettsia are probably the closest relative (in a phylogenetic sense) to the mitochondria.
