ID#:20140
Description:Caption:
The pectoral region of this horse exhibited cutaneous lesions, which proved to be caused by the fungal organism, Sporothrix schenckii. Though in this instance, the victim was a domesticated equine, people are also prone to becoming infected by this fungus, causing the disease, sporotrichosis. Note that in places, the lesions had eroded through the skin, while others nodular abscesses, were just beneath the skin surface. See PHIL 20142, for a closer view of this horse's cutaneous lesions.
