Cutaneous blastomycosis in a horse



This report describes the case of a horse presented with cutaneous lesions caused by Blastomyces dermatitidis in the absence of signs of other organ involvement. Diagnosis was achieved through cytology, histopathology and culture. Surgical debulking associated with systemic therapy with oral fluconazole resulted in significant remission; however, recurrence occurred following presumed early cessation of treatment.
