Spread of a Microsporum canis infection in an agricultural facility (case description)

, : Spread of a Microsporum canis infection in an agricultural facility (case description). Berliner und Munchener Tierarztliche Wochenschrift 107(12): 413-416

In a combined pig production and fattening unit the weaned piglets on the flatdecks and some young fattening pigs were suffering from a Microsporum canis-infection. Besides the pigs the children of the farmer showed skin alterations. The infection was spread probably by the cats, which had access to the houses for sows and for sows with piglets. In cases of uncertain skin alterations, a mycologic etiology should be considered.
