We are now on our 300th case! This blog was 'born' in 2007 as a way for me to share cases with just a few clinical microbiology fellows at my institution. I am now very proud (and amazed) to say that this blog has expanded to have an international viewership and receives more than 14,000 page hits each month from individuals with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. Your readership and comments continue to inspire me. Thank you!
The case for this week consists of several strands of hair from an elderly man living in a skilled nursing facility. What is your identification?
