Description:Magnified 560X, this photomicrograph showed the presence of Pneumocystis jirovecii, formerly known as Pneumocystis carinii, fungal organisms using an indirect fluorescent antibody (FA) test.
This microscopic fungus, seen here using IFA microscopy, is arguably the most important cause of pneumonia in the immunocompromised host, such as an individual with AIDS.
