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, producing a new cell. At this point in the reproductive process, these two cells were about to separate into two distinct organisms, each of which would go on to reproduce in this same fashion. See PHIL 20344, and 20345, showing the progressive maturation of this budding process.
