Under a magnification of 200X, this photomicrograph reveals some of the pathologic morphology displayed by a primate hair shaft indicative of the disease known as white piedra, also known as trichosporosis, which was caused by the fungal organism, Trichosporon beigelii. Note the nodular deformation of the hair shaft, within which you’re able to see the presence of numerous fungal spores.
