Malassezia infection secondary to antibiotic therapy

Veterinaria Cremona (Suppl. 2): 8-9
Malassezia infection secondary to antibiotic therapy
A 7-year-old German Shepherd dog that had had erythema and pruritus of the ventral abdomen, inguinal and auxiliary areas for 6 years was diagnosed as having an ulcerative pyodermatitis and treated orally with cefalexin twice a day for 8 weeks. The ulcers disappeared, and initially the erythema decreased, but later this spread and also affected the interdigital areas. Malassezia pachydermatis was then isolated from the lesions.
