Caption

Aspergillus fumigatus. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a fruiting body of the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus, which causes aspergillosis in humans. The round structures are spores (conidia), about to be released into the air. A. fumigatus grows in household dust and decaying vegetable matter. Although harmless to healthy people, the fungus can cause complications in people with respiratory complaints or weakened immune systems. Inhalation of the spores may lead to aspergillosis, infection of the lungs and bronchi, which can be fatal in some cases. Magnification unknown.
