Two cases of cryptococcus gattii infection in the rhesus macaque (Macaca Mulatta)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Cryptococcus gattii was diagnosed in two female indoor-housed rhesus macaques. Gross and histopathologic findings included an isolated pulmonary cryptococcoma in a non-SIV-infected macaque and disseminated disease centered on the lungs of an SIV-infected macaque. Fungal yeast were positive with special stains, and the diagnoses were confirmed with a lateral flow assay and PCR.
