Under a magnification of 100X, this photomicrograph of a hematoxylin-eosin (H&E)-stained specimen, revealed some of the histopathology found in a lung tissue sample extracted from a patient diagnosed with a case of actinomycosis, or mycetoma, caused by a Gram-positive, fungus-like aerobic bacterium, Propionibacterium propionicus, formerly known as Arachnia propionica. Note the presence of a number of chronic inflammatory granules, often associated with the histopathologic findings characteristic of actinomycosis.
