Under a magnification of 200X, this photomicrograph of a Guinea pig hair specimen, revealed the histopathology exhibited by a dermatophytic fungal infection, caused by the dermatophyte, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, strain A-219. Note that the infection looked to be confined to the hair shaft’s exterior, categorizing this as an ectothrix, also referred to as an exothrix. See PHIL 16623, for a greater magnification of this hair shaft histopathology.
