Caption

Candida albicans. Light micrograph (darkfield) of the hyphal network of the fungus Candida albicans. The thin strands are the tubular filaments (hyphae) that have developed from the fungal spores (not seen). The hyphae have branched and spread into a network (mycelium) which will produce more spores. Candida albicans causes the infection known as candidiasis which affects the moist mucous membranes of the body, such as skin folds, mouth, respiratory tract and vagina. Oral and vaginal conditions are known as thrush. The infection may also appear in persons receiving prolonged broad-spectrum antibiotics. Magnification: x50 at 35mm size.
