Caption: False-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the fungus Microsporum persicolor, a cause of the scalp skin condition tinea capitus or ringworm of the scalp. Here, fungal threads of the vegetative mycelium are seen, two of which are developing spore-producing fruiting bodies (at centre). This fungi causes superficial infections of keratinized layers of the skin, hair and nails. Most commonly, Microsporum persicolor inhabits the skin of the scalp giving rise to round, scaly lesions and producing itchy patches of hair loss, mainly in children. It is spread by contact with fungal spores. Treatment is with antifungal drugs. Magnification: x245 at 6x7cm size.
