WHAT’S THIS STUFF IN MY HAIR?
Morgellons Research Group (MRG) regularly receives specimens of a filamentous fungal hyphae-like artifact that at this time remains unidentified by numerous researchers. There appears to be an association between the production of this artifact and the condition known as Morgellons syndrome. This filamentous substance can often be combed from head hair or found on the scalp. Recently, an association with Bovine Digital Disease (BDD) has been reported in the medical literature. Specimens have been presented to MRG reported to have been found widely distributed in our environment from outdoor airborne sources to under the epidermal skin layer of human subjects.
The following photomicrographic illustrations are specimens submitted to MRG from various locations as far South as Patagonia, Chile.
It is hoped that these presentations will aid researchers in the quest for the true cause of this condition and lasting treatment for the long-suffering Morgellons community.
