Description:Caption:
Under a magnification of 1150X, this photomicrograph of a liver tissue specimen, revealed the presence of what is known as an asteroid body, containing a number of Candida albicans fungal organisms, some of which were undergoing a reproductive process known as budding. Note how the periphery of the asteroid body was arranged in a radiating configuration. This specimen was harvested from a male patient with a case of systemic candidiasis.
