Description:Seen from an anterior perspective, or from the front, these were the front feet of an unidentified specie of mouse that had become swollen and erythematous due to an invasive fungal infection known as lobomycosis, caused by the yeast-like fungal organism, Lacazia loboi, formerly known as Loboa loboi.
Lobomycosis is also known by the names Lobo’s disease, and lacaziosis, and is a chronic inflammatory fungal infection. Histopathologic characteristics include the presence of large numbers of yeast-like cells, which morphologically are large, ranging in size from 5µm to 12µm, and are thick-walled. As seen in this case, you’ll note the presence of tubular interconnection between these cells.
