Description:This image depicts three slant culture test tubes, all of which had been inoculated with Trichophyton tonsurans fungal organisms derived from a monospore culture. Of interest, were the differences in colonial morphology from one culture to the next, though the experimental circumstances were identical for both tubes.
Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton tonsurans are two common dermatophytes. These two species are usually transmitted from person to person. Another common dermatophyte is Microsporum canis, which is transmitted from animals such as cats and dogs to people. Dermatophytes like to live on moist areas of the skin, such as places where there are skin folds. They can also contaminate items in the environment, such as clothing, towels and bedding.
