Under a high magnification, this photomicrograph of a sample of pus, revealed ultrastructural morphology exhibited by a Blastomyces dermatitidis fungal organism. In this view, you are able to see this yeast-form organism undergoing the asexual reproductive method known as budding, performing an extrusion of its cell wall and internal contents, thereby, producing a new cell that was slightly less mature than the one pictured in PHIL 20345, and very young compared to the cell depicted in PHIL 20346.
