Under a magnification of 400X, this photomicrograph of a Congolese tissue sample, that had been stained using the Gömöri staining technique, revealed the presence of a Blastomyces dermatitidis fungal cell. 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.
