Description:Under a magnification of 475X, this photomicrograph revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology exhibited by the fungus Microsporum canis, which had originated from an equine isolate. Of note, are the large, spindle-shaped macroconidia, and the masses of numerous intertwined filamentous hyphae.
M. canis, a zoophilic dermatophyte often found in cats and dogs, is a common cause of tinea corporis and tinea capitis in humans. Other dermatophytes are included in the genera Epidermophyton and Trichophyton.
