Abstract

A 5-month-old male Quarter Horse was examined because of multicentric, granulomatous, cutaneous lesions of the dorsum and prepuce. The cutaneous lesions were excised, and sodium iodide was administered orally for 2 weeks. Multicentric cutaneous pythiosis was diagnosed by histologic examination and immunoperoxidase staining of excised tissues. By 3 months after surgery, all lesions had healed.
