Under a magnification of 125X, this photomicrograph revealed some of the histopathologic details exhibited by this section of lung tissue, harvested from a premature infant, who had died shortly after birth. Depicted here, was a mycotic chronic inflammatory granule. At this magnification, the fungal organisms appeared as pinkish clusters. See PHIL 21373, for a closer view of this specimen, and a clearer view of these filamentous forms.
