Description:Under a magnification of 100X, and stained using the periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) staining method, this photomicrograph revealed the histopathologic changes found in a tissue section from a patient with a case of eumycotic mycetoma, which was due to the organism, Pseudallescheria boydii, formerly known as Allescheria boydii, an ascomycetous mold.
Pseudallescheria boydii is the most common etiologic pathogen associated with eumycetoma in the United States. The disease is a chronic cutaneous and subcutaneous infection with the foot being the most common site of infection.
