Description:Magnified 375X, this photomicrograph revealed some of the histopathologic features exhibited in a murine, i.e., mouse, tissue specimen, which was infected with what was determined to be Sporothrix schenckii fungal organisms.
S. schenckii is a dimorphic fungus. It is found worldwide in soil, plants, and decaying vegetation. Cutaneous sporotrichosis follows inoculation of spores into the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Infections of joints, central nervous system, and lungs occur, but are rare. Sporotrichosis following occupational exposure has been described previously among forestry workers, horticulturists, and miners.” (Reference link below)
