Description:At a magnification of 1125X, this photomicrograph revealed the presence of a number of Prototheca zopfii algal organisms.
Members of the genus Prototheca are achlorophyllic, which means that these organisms, like fungi, contain no chlorophyll. Documented cases of protothecosis usually involve P. wickerhamii, and sometimes P. zopfii, and resemble infections caused by fungal organisms.
