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.

  1. I have so much stuff in my hair. I now use T Gel Head & Shoulders and Lime juice. This has calmed things down alot. What Else CAN I do???

  2. What I am finding is this: there is a white (sometimes clear) ultra thin fiber that has bronze and blue bands in it. This fiber seems to be the one that penetrates the hair shaft and makes the hair appear to move. These fibers, like most morgies, are brilliant reflectors of light – so much so that it’s hard to get a good detailed microscopic image.

  3. Are there any news for 2014,

    • Hi I have had the same coming out of my skin and after buying a digital microscope to try and get some answers I have examined particles and thing this may be a mould as on a few occasions I have found a small speck in what appeared to be a worm like clot and when viewed through digital microscope it was a conical shape and had this filament coming out of it that grew as I watched it and I was so focussed on watching the growth of the filament that when I looked down at the conical structure it had become entangled in a fillament which I likened to the fuzzballs that I regularly find on my sheets which appear as black specks but when observed through microscope are entangled circulating fuzzballs, I thought I had recorded this but only caught the initial elongation of filliament, As I had already suspected that this maybe a yeast infection I found a site called dr fungus and this explained the difference between yeasts and moulds and a major difference is that moulds have an ‘elongating hyphae’ which is what I had observed(it also shows video clips and pics) The one that it was most like was called ‘trycophyton’ and causes hair skin and nail infections all of which I have so maybe we need to be looking at moulds and ask our dermatoligists to test for these and treat us for these.Prior to my findings my dermatologist had recently put me on a course of viscopaste/icthpaste dressings for my legs and I do wash with hibiscrub before applying bandages but can report that all lesions on legs have mainly healed after 2 weeks of applying dressings so after 3 years of incessant itching and lesions on my legs I am begining to be hopeful-anyway I hope this info may be of some help or even worth some consideration.I have to go back to hosp next week and will ask if I can be tested for mould fungus as I still have some lesions on arms.I Know I am fortunate in that my dermatologist does recognise ‘morgellons’ as a disease.
