We report on the phenomenon of the cell's growth form bistability of the dimorphic fungi. It is clearly demonstrated, that the fungal growth in filamentous (mycelial) or yeast-like forms are external (parametrically) controlled and switched. The mycelium to yeast transition under determined environment are described as Landau phase transition. The phenomenon of dimorphism is of a great importance as a biomedical problem.
