Description:Under a relatively low magnification of 500X, this Gridley-stained photomicrograph revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by a mycetoma caused by Acremonium sp. fungal organisms.
A mycetoma is a chronic granulomatous inflammatory reaction, usually involving the cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues of the foot. The disease is normally acquired by agricultural workers who traumatically injure the patency of the skin surface, thereby, allowing the fungal spores an entry way into the subcutaneous tissures.
