Under a magnification of 140X, this periodic acid–Schiff (PAS)-stained esophageal tissue specimen, revealed an invasive infection caused by the fungal organism, Candida albicans. The specimen had been harvested during an autopsy of a Rhesus monkey, Macaca mulatta, which had succumbed to an oropharyngeal infection, known more familiarly as thrush. Note the presence of numerous hyphae and yeast cells, in the superficial stratified squamous epithelial layer of the esophagus.
