Mycological investigation of dermatophytosis in Dog: A case study

Subha Ganguly, Parveez Ahmad Para and Shabu Showkat

Dermatophytosis is a superficial infection of the keratinized layers of the skin and its appendages (hair, feathers, horns) of farm, domesticated and wild animals and birds. The lesions are frequently ring shaped, hence the disease is called ring worm. Dermatophytes are filamentous fungi which invade keratinized tissues of humans and animals, causing mild to severe, localized and/or diffuse infections. Dermatophytes are non-invasive cannot survive in living tissues nor in areas of intense inflammation and they have keratolytic activity. Infection is generally restricted to the non-living cornified layers. The present article reports on the laboratory examination of skin scraping sample collected from a dog suspected of superficial infection with dermatophytes.
