Caption: Phagocytosis of a yeast spore. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a neutrophil (lilac) phagocytosing (engulfing and destroying) a spore from the yeast Candida albicans (purple). Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cell and are part of the body's immune system. Candida albicans is a fungus commonly found on human skin and mucous membranes. However, it can cause infections, such as thrush or nappy rash, in those with weakened immune defences.
