This photomicrograph reveals some of the ultrastructural details exhibited by the dermatophytic fungal organism, Epidermophyton floccosum, including the organism’s septate hyphae, and smooth, thin-walled, club-shaped, multicellular macroconidia. E. floccosum is known to be a cause of dermatophytosis, leading to tinea corporis (ringworm), tinea cruris (jock itch), tinea pedis (athlete’s foot), and onychomycosis or tinea unguium, a fungal infection of the nail bed.
