Cryptococcus gattii-induced cryptococcosis is an emerging infectious disease of humans and animals worldwide, with rare descriptions of this infection in domestic animals from Brazil. This study presents the findings associated with C. gattii in dogs from Londrina, Paraná, Southern Brazil. Read More

An adult Blanca-Celtibérica doe originating from a goat herd with a high prevalence of tuberculosis was presented with respiratory signs. At necropsy, this goat had a diffuse and severe mycotic pneumonia associated with the presence of Cryptococcus neoformans concomitant with pulmonary focal caseous nodules from which Mycobacterium bovis was isolated. Microscopically, the mycotic lesion was a granulomatous pneumonia with many large foamy macrophages containing intracellular yeast bodies. Read More

Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii are responsible globally for almost one million cryptococcosis cases yearly, mostly in immunocompromised patients, such as those living with HIV. Infections due to C. gattii have mainly been described in tropical and subtropical regions, but its adaptation to temperate regions was crucial in the species evolution and highlighted the importance of this pathogenic yeast in the context of disease.

Background: During the past decades there has been an increase in cryptococcal infections caused by the basidiomycetous yeast species Cryptococcus gattii sensu lato, among humans and animals that live in endemic regions in Australia, Europe and the Americas. Unlike human cryptococcosis, little epidemiological data are available about C. gattii sensu lato infections in horses. Read More
