Pseudomonilethrix: An Artifact

Pseudomonilethrix: An Artifact Abstract • Pseudomonilethrix is a microscopic hair shaft abnormality characterized by small beaded globular swellings. It is an artifact produced while preparing hairs for microscopic examination and occurs when overlapped hairs are pressed together between glass slides.
