Caption

Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Scedosporium prolificans, a dematiaceous filamentous fungus isolated from soil samples and infected patients. Colonies grow rapidly and consist of filamentous hyaline hyphae. Asexual conidiogenous cells (conidia) called annelides form at the end of hyaline hyphae. S. prolificans is a human pathogen causing many different fungal diseases. Subcutaneous infections, osteomyelitis, and arthritis are usually posttraumatic and may affect otherwise healthy individuals. S. prolificans is now recognized as the most common cause of disseminated phaeohyphomycosis. Colonization of the external ear, paranasal sinuses and lung, including fungus ball (tumour like mass of fungi) have been reported.S. prolificans is resistant to many fungicides. Magnification: x665 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
