Meningitis (dog R). Grocott-stained serial section of the previous slide for dog R reveals the presence of fungal material at the centre of each microgranuloma. These lesions were not cultured, but Aspergillus spp. was identified by immunohistochemical examination using a panel of specific antisera. There was no evidence of systemic involvement in this dog.
This case was reported in Veterinary Record 1995, 136: 38-41.
