Description:Under a magnification of 125X, this photomicrograph depicts the histopathologic changes associated with cryptococcosis of the lung using Mucicarmine stain.
Cryptococcosis is an infection caused by fungi that belong to the genus Cryptococcus. There are over 30 different species of Cryptococcus, but two species – Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii – cause nearly all cryptococcal infections in humans and animals. Although many people who develop cryptococcosis have weakened immune systems, some are previously healthy.
