Abstract

COELHO, A.C. et al. Mucormycosis due to Rhizopus sp. in fishes: first case described in Portugal. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2003, vol.55, n.2, pp.234-237. ISSN 0102-0935.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-09352003000200019.

This paper describes the first case of fish-boces (Chondrostoma polylepsis) with cutaneous lesions caused by Rhizopus sp. The results point out the role of fish-boces as a surveillance sentinel of cutaneous mucormycosis infections in aquatic recreation areas.

Keywords : fish; cutaneous mucormycosis; epidemiological surveillance.
