Abstract

The brain of an 18-month-old cat that died after developing incoordination and circling had massive hyphal invasion, inflammatory cells, reactive neuroglial cells and liquefactive necrosis. Culture on Sabouraud's dextrose agar at 28 deg yielded a greyish black, velvety fungus with long chains of yellow-brown, oval to elliptical conidia. Identification of C. bantianum was based on abundant, dematiaceous, septate mycelium in the brain and the chains of conidia in culture.
