90th FVMA Annual Conference
Fungal dermatitis is a common infection in veterinary dermatology. Fungal infections may occur secondary to overgrowth of normal fungal commensals in the face of skin barrier disruption, inflammation of the skin or systemic immunodeficiency. Opportunistic infections are also possible in both immune-competent and immune-suppressed hosts. This case-based approach to common fungal dermatoses will review the pathogenesis, clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment of each disease.
