Canine pythiosis--isolation and identification of Pythium insidiosum

Canine pythiosis--isolation and identification of Pythium insidiosum

Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation 1(4): 295-298

P. insidiosum was isolated from the subcutaneous tissue of a 1-year-old tan crossbreed dog and from the intestinal tract of an 18-month-old Samoyed male. Gomori's methenamine silver stain was superior to haematoxylin and eosin in demonstrating the organism in tissue sections. The agent was identified as P. insidiosum by zoospore formation in an aqueous yeast extract solution containing grass blades.
