文献摘要

  A 7-year-old castrated male Whippet developed deep ulcerative skin lesions whilst receiving immunosuppressive doses of prednisolone and cyclosporine for the treatment of immune- mediated haemolytic anaemia. The lesions were determined to be a phaeohyphomycosis, caused by  Curvularia lunata . The dog was treated with a combination of systemic antifungals and weaning off immunosuppressants and made a complete recovery. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first case report of the successful treatment of disseminated cutaneous phaeohyphomycosis in a dog.
