The lack of characteristic endospores causes Prototheca to resemble nonsporulating cells of Blastomyces dermatitidis, Cryptococcus neoformans, Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, and some stages of Coccidioides immitis, Pneumocystis jiroveci, Rhinosporidium seeberi, and the agent causing chromomycosis (8,38,88,114,139,140,149,162); thus, diagnosis of Prototheca species infection by histopathology can be difficult. The size of the sporangia is helpful in distinguishing Prototheca from other fungi.…”
