Description:Magnified 500x, this Gomori-stained photomicrograph revealed the presence of histopathologic changes indicative of an unknown fungal disease, which resembled protothecosis.
Protothecosis in humans is caused by the achlorophyllic algae P. wickerhamii and P. zopfii, and presents itself as cutaneous infections with systemic dissemination, usually affecting immunocompromised individuals.
