Caption: Microsporum fungus. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the fungus Microsporum gypseum which causes ringworm on the scalp and body. It is one of several dermatophyte fungal species that infect humans. The cylindrical spore-producing structures (macroconidia) are seen connected by hyphal filaments. The hyphae spread into a large fungal network, known as a mycelium. Microsporum gypseum is found in the soil. Gardener's hands can become infected, as well as the underarms. It also causes ringworm of the scalp (tinea capitus) giving rise to round scaly lesions with hair loss, mainly in children. It is spread by contact with fungal spores. Magnification: x950 at 6x6cm size.
