Cross ‐sectional survey of health management and prevalence of vector‐borne diseases, endoparasites and ectoparasites in Samoan dogs

ConclusionsThere was a very high prevalence of D. immitis, hookworm and external parasites in Samoan dogs, and prophylactic medication is rarely administered. This is the first report confirming A. platys in Samoa and the South Pacific islands. The public health implications of poor management of the dogs should be considered and investigated further.

Authors: Fraser J Abstract Invasive fungal infections are becoming increasingly more prevalent in clinical practice. This corresponds with more patients living with immunosuppression and improved techniques to identify fungal infections. Subcutaneous fungal masses can often masquerade and imitate common dermatological lesions such as cysts. Querying a fungal aetiology of a mass is important, as fungal elements can be missed on histological examination, and special stains may be needed to identify spores and hyphae to make the diagnosis. Skin trauma with inoculation of fungal elements contained in soil and vegetable...
