Disease with this organism is thought to be acquired through inhalation, resulting in intracellular phagocytosis with subsequent widespread vascular dissemination.
Speecies which are pathogenic to dogs include:
- Monocillium indicum
Diagnosis is based on histological examination of biopsied material and visualization and identification of fungal hyphae.
No treatment has been reported with this disease.
