Case of the Week 721

 Happy American Independence day (July 4th) and a belated Canada day (July 1st)! As an American, this weeks case very appropriately has a lot of red, white, and (purple-ish)blue. The following round objects were seen in a stool specimen on modified acid fast. The patient has had more than 1 week of profuse watery diarrhea and abdominal discomfort.These objects were also highlighted with using calcofluor white fluorescence staining (arrow) along with stool flora.What are these objects? Are they fungus or parasite?
