Description:Under a madnification of 125X, also known as Gömöri stain, this Grocott's methenamine silver-stained (GMS) photomicrograph reveals some of the cytoarchitectural pathology found in a lung tissue sample extracted from a patient ill with pulmonary candidiasis. Of importance, you’ll note the presence of Candida albicans fungal organisms throughout the lung tissue.
Invasive candidiasis is a fungal infection that can occur when Candida yeasts enter the bloodstream. Candidemia (a bloodstream infection with Candida), is extremely rare in people without risk factors, but it is the fourth most common bloodstream infection among hospitalized patients in the United States.
