Is that not just plant material? The beginnings of parasitosis of the delusional variety if it is. Advise the patient not to worry.

Of course if I'm wrong than that'll be a terrible thing to say to the patient :s....

Plant material. Of what kind I have no idea. They resemble arthroconidia still stuck together. Is there a reference book for such things?

This is a parisite and I know because I have been deadly sick for 3 years and doctors are clueless.Im starting to think we might be better off skipping the bill handling it ourselves.
