Caption: Phagocytosis of fungus spores. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of spores from the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus (yellow) being phagocytosed (engulfed and destroyed) by a neutrophil (grey). Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cell and are part of the body's immune system. Aspergillus fumigatus is common in dust, soil, and on plants and plant products such as hay or grain. It can cause a number of different diseases in humans, including allergic disorder, respiratory infection and invasive disease.
