The location of the fluorescent matter in microsporon infected hair

Abstract

Biopsies taken from cases of microsporosis caused byMicrosporon audouinii orM. canis were sectioned. Ultraviolet microscopy revealed that the fluorescent matter is located only in the cortex and medulla of the hair. Neither intrapilary hyphae nor the sheath of arthrospores surrounding the infected hair fluoresce.
