Caption: Figure 1: Histological examination of gastric biopsy showed areas of ulceration and necrosis with inflammatory granulation, within areas of necrosis are seen many broad aseptate
fungal hyphae of mucor
conidiophores and radiate heads with biserriate sterigmata.
Conidia solitary, dry, straight, some time remain in bundles at the base, slightly curve at the tips, cylindrical in the middle, aseptate
, colorless, smooth, 12-15 x 1.
Hematoxylin and Eosin stained section of the tissue from the maxillary sinus showed abundant invasive fungi with broad aseptate
CT guided biopsy showed broad aseptate
hyphae with right angled branching and background necrosis.
A KOH wet mount showed broad aseptate
hyphae with right-angled branching.
The degradation of lindane by Gram negative, motile with single polar flagellum, rod shaped bacteria (Psuedomonas putida) and the fungi with aseptate
and unbranched hyphae (Aspergillus fumigatus).
These stains showed broad aseptate
hyphae enclosed in giant cells.
ribbon shaped hyphae on direct microscopy helps in diagnosis in such cases.
Spreng by Schmid and Oberwinkler (1995): the endophytic fungal hyphae were aseptate
and spread inter- and intra-cellularly, they penetrated the host tissue through the rhizoids, developed vesicles in both the rhizoidal and the prothallic cells.
Papanicolaou stained filter preparations showed numerous acute inflammatory cells, reactive bronchial cells and broad, ribbonlike aseptate
fungal hyphae with right angled branching at irregular intervals consistent with Rhizopus /mucor infection (Figures 1A and 1B).
The present study revealed: 1) seven different types of trichomes: conical, aseptate
flagellate, filiform flagellate, 1-armed, 2-4-armed, bulbiferous flagellate, and glandular biseriate; 2) that 28 of the total of 38 species have trichomes in tufts; 3) six different types of stomata: anomocytic, anisocytic, cyclocytic, actinocytic, tetracytic, and staurocytic; 4) that some trichome types, such as 2-4-armed (B.
In the case of vegetative filaments, or mycelia, they can be either septate or aseptate
The previously drained nodules did not heal and a punch biopsy revealed broad, aseptate
hyphae consistent with a zygomycete (Fig.
In tissue and in culture, clinically significant zygomycete hyphae can often be distinguished from other invasive hyaline molds by their greater width and obtuse branching pattern[1,4,5] A term often used by surgical pathologists and frequently encountered in the literature, aseptate
, is also ascribed to the zygomycetes.
