Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Curvularia verruculosa - vegetative, septate, dematiaceous hyphae. Curvularia verruculosa is a filamentous hyphomycete fungus. It is a common mould that is a soil facultative pathogen of many plant species, especially in tropical regions. It can cause Curvularia leaf spot and also food spoilage in pineapple fruits. Curvularia verruculosa can also cause eumycotic mycetomas in animals. Curvularia species can be the causative agents of phaeohyphomycosis. In humans Curvularia can cause wound infection, mycetoma, onychomycosis, keratitis, allergic sinusitis, cerebral abscess, cerebritis, pneumonia, allergic bronchopulmonary disease, endocarditis, and peritonitis. Magnification: x320 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
