Vascular Invasion By Hyphae

Slide 23

July 2011

You can see here this is a vessel that has been invaded by a zygomycetes. The whole vascular wall is surrounded by a zygomycetes. And as we mentioned earlier, what happens is they hyphae grow down inside the vessel, the red cells, the white cells plate aggregate on that and form a clot or a thrombus and it blocks or occludes the artery and then the blood supply down to that area distally, does not occur and so the tissue dies and becomes necrotic and that is where the major problem occurs.
