Under a magnification of 100X, this photomicrograph revealed some of the histopathologic changes found at the site of a corneal lesion, caused by what was determined to be the saprophytic fungal organism, Tritirachium roseum. This corneal tissue sample was processed using hematoxylin-eosin (H&E) stain. Note the presence of an inflammatory response accented by the high number of various white blood cells, edema, and necrosis.
