Saggital section of kidney from a German shepherd dog with disseminated aspergillosis. There are granulomata within the medulla, and fungal material within the renal pelvis. Renal involvement in canine dissemianted aspergillosis is common, and the demonstration of fungal hyphae within urine sediment is a useful screening test.
