Deep Granulomatous Dermatitis of the Fin Caused by Fusarium solani in a False Killer Whale (Pseudorca crassidens)

Miyuu TANAKA, et al. (pp. 779–782)

Histopathological findings of skin nodular lesions found in the left breast fin of a 10-year-old female false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens). The lesions consist of multiple granulomas (arrows) around clumps of fungal hyphae, and spread diffusely into the deep dermis and bone (asterisks) (inset). Fusarium solani was isolated and its gene was detected from the skin lesions. Hematoxylin and eosin (HE) stain.
