At a magnification of 400X, this was a photomicrograph of a sputum specimen, under phase contrast illumination, and processed using lactophenol cotton blue (LPCB) stain. The specimen was extracted from a patient with a case of paracoccidioidomycosis, also referred to as South American blastomycosis, caused by the fungal organism of the genus, Paracoccidioides. In this view, a yeast form of the organism had been assumed. See PHIL 22957, for this slide viewed using bright field illumination.
