repost and 2 interesting papers with possible algae pathogen

I believe the triangular objects are seeds. Here is a repost from my other page, first posted in April 2012.

I saw this today. 

It was extracted from a Morgellon’s eruption with a cotton swab. This is about 100x.  My gut reaction, without thinking for an instant, was to say this is a sprouted seed. I often grow sprouted beans for salads in a jar. It reminds me of a bean sprout. I think it is a monocot or similar plant object.



During the past 24 months, I have observed M objects in a variety of individuals. These include 1000s of tiny black triangles; and 10000s of fibers. This is the first time I’ve seen many objects with both. Had no idea what they were. With the newer magnifier, I was able to view and photograph this M object. There are more in the spring season. 

This month, I suddenly saw many objects similar to this. This idea of it being a seed would fit in with seasonal new growth. It has both the triangle shape and the filaments. Prior to this I had observed many filaments and triangles, all separate; but upon seeing this object and my immediate non-thinking gut reaction was to say to myself,  This a sprouting seed ! – a tiny new plant. Then I thought this is the root cause – M etiology is some kind of infection from a plant like life form that can grow in human tissue. The other colorful triangles seen are probably also seeds or seedlike objects that is the method of this plant’s propagation. Like some other plants the seed color grows different color plants/seeds (black vs brown sesame, etc.). Due to its ability to sink tendrils (probably its roots) shaped fibers into the skin, it causes severe inflammation.

No one has identified the filaments or triangles. I am convinced it is a seed and plant like life form. I am now reasonably sure this is the Morgellon’s pathogen. To be precise, I believe this is the cause of the fibers in M sufferer’s skin. It must be an emerging disease. I would not be surprised if it grows inside other tissues of people who are immune system compromised, as well as on the skin.  Patients experience sensations as if there is a bug or parasite but those feelings are probably due to these types of objects growing. Anti-fungal meds do not work; any meds and treatments tried have all failed to effect a complete cure. I think everything else M people experience are likely to be secondary infections. 

I’m not a biologist or plant – –  I’m a clinician. It will be my task to stop its growth without causing damage to the human system. Hopefully someone else can sort that part out. Is this a sprouting seed?


Next, today I saw this webpage – a pretty interesting discussion of morgellons being put into a hamster.  The page/article describes the likely etiological organism causing a new human infectious condition known as Yan (Morgellons) disease. see URL

or, view the PDF Yan disease

In the text, the author states certain chemicals point to the organism being one of four types of organisms,

The bluish phycocyanin and reddish phycoerythrin
phycobiliproteins can be found in four types of
organisms, ie, cyanobacteria (formerly called bluegreen
algae) and rhodophyte, cryptomonad, and
glaucocystophyta algae.

The next analytical statement is

The multicellular nature of the
organism also rules out any possible relationship with
cyanobacteria, cryptomonads, or glaucocystophyceae


This implies it must be the other category, a rodophyte, in other words, a type of red algae.

The existence of possible photosynthetic pigments
in the organism rules out the possibility of a fungal
relationship. Thus, Morgellons might be the first
report of an organism undergoing a photosynthetic
process in humans.


This is very possible, not impossible, meaning it could be a new type of emerging disease.


Here is an algae pathogen page, a prior page, with achlorophyllic algae.

Researchers from Teikyo University in Tokyo isolated a previously unidentified species of microalgae from a biopsy of a human chronic skin ulcer. They named the micro-organism Prototheca cutis after comparison with other strains showed it was genetically similar to Prototheca wickerhamii — a rare algal species that has previously been associated with causing human skin infection, septicemia, or meningitis.

I suppose there is no reason an algae with chlorophyll could not infect skin too.
