Description: Caption:
Under a magnification of 1100X, this photomicrograph of a Brown & Brenn-stained tissue sample, revealed some of the histopathologic details exhibited by an actinomycotic granule, produced in a case of actinomycosis, which had been caused by the Gram-positive bacterial organism, Actinomyces viscosus. This section was from a region at the edge of the granule, enabling you to see numerous filamentous shapes, identifying the bacteria, and how they resembled fungal organisms.
