Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Hyphae and conidia (spores) of Scopulariopsis brevicalis . This fungus was isolated from a water damaged building. Scopulariopsis spp. are can be found on soil, plant material, feathers, insects, house dust and on a wide variety of materials including old carpets and water damaged wallpaper and plaster board. The conidia are asexual reproductive spores that bud from the end of branching hyphae (that make up the body of the fungus). Scopulariopsis brevicaulis can cause minor infections of the nails and skin, known as onychomycosis. Scopulariopsis is a Type III allergen, It may cause a variety of other infections in humans, such as mycetoma, invasive sinusitis, keratitis, endophthalmitis, endocarditis, pneumonia, brain abscess and disseminated infections. Magnification: x240 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
