Histology of rhinosporidiosis. A formaldehyde-fixed section of human nasal polyp was stained with Periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) and visualized by bright-field microscopy at 400X magnification. The thick walls of immature R. seeberi trophocytes stain with PAS (pink), and the spherical organisms are surrounded by inflammatory cells.
