ID#:15423
Description:Seen from a left lateral view of a bovine animal, this was a cutaneous dermatophytic infection involving the skin of a cow, revealing the roughened nodular appearance of the lesion, as well as the hair loss, which is usually associated with this infestation. This illness was determined to be caused by the dermatophytic fungal organism, Trichophyton verrucorum.
T. verrucosum presents itself as a zoophilic, i.e., an affinity for animals, infection affecting horses and cattle, though can infect humans through by way of direct contact with an infected equine or bovine animal. When the organism affects the hair shaft, the infection presents itself as ectothrix invasion of the shaft.
