Dermatophytosis by Trichophyton rubrum and T raubitschekii in dogs

Abstract
This study was carried out to determine the causative agent and the clinical features of dermatophytosis occurred in 3 dogs from Tae-gu, Korea between 1996 and 1997. Specimens of hair and scale, collected from skin lesions were inoculated on potato dextrose agar and mycobiotic agar supplemented with thiamine and inositol. The agar plates were incubated at 25℃ for 2 weeks. Growing fungi isolated were identified by the morphological and growth characterization on bromocresol purple-milk solids-glucose medium, Christensen urea broth and trichophyton media, and by hair perforation tests.
Skin lesions were observed in legs, abdomen, ears, face and head with alopecia of various sizes accompanied by itching and/or inflammation.
The causative agent of dermatophytosis in the 3 dogs was identified as Microsprum gypseum and Trichophyton rubrum (mixed infection, dog 1), T rubrum (dog 2) and T raubitschekii (dog 3). The dermatophytosis by T rubrum and T raubitschekii was first found on animals in Korea.
