Abstract

CASTELO BRANCO, R.L. et al. Dermatophylosis in Santa Inês sheep from Distrito Federal. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2012, vol.64, n.5, pp. 1184-1187. ISSN 0102-0935.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-09352012000500015.

Four cases of dermatophylosis were reported in Santa Inês sheep in a study period of one year. Microscopically, septate filaments and coccoid forms zoospores were observed. Attempts to isolate the microorganisms were accomplished using Haastra's method and it was successful in only one case. Dermatophilus congolensis samples have grown on blood agar, colonies where hemolytic, small, round and pigmentation vary from yellow to orange. The gram staining method was efficient to confirm the presence of the microorganism affecting the epidermis due to typical morphology of the agent.

Keywords : sheep; Santa Inês; dermatophylosis.
