Caption: Microsporum persicolor. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of the fungus Microsporum persicolor, cause of the scalp skin condition tinea capitus or ringworm of the scalp. Fungal threads called hyphae are seen, with one forming a spore-producing fruiting body (at centre). This fungus causes superficial infections of keratinized layers of the skin, hair and nails. Most commonly, it 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: x2,000 at 6x4.5cm size. Magnification; x2,280 at 6x7cm size.
