Abstract

A -year-old, intact male, Border collie dog was evaluated because of a -day his-tory of right epistaxis. On physical examination, there was no evidence of nasal dis-charge. A mild depigmentation of the right nasal planum was observed. The infectiouspanel was negative for Leishmania i., Dirolaria i., A. vasorum and tickborne infec-tious diseases. CT scan of the head, rhinoscopy, histopathologic examination of the rightnasal mucosa, fungal culture and PCR sequencing were performed at initial diagnosticworkup and follow-up. A severe and diuse chronic idiopathic suppurative lympho-plasmacytic rhinitis was diagnosed, along with isolation of Trichosporon ashaii.Becauseof the unsatisfactory clinical response to marbooxacin, piroxicam, itraconazole andclotrimazole, oral prednisone was administered. After the initial  weeks, prednisonewas progressively reduced and discontinued  months later. The dog showed completedisappearance of clinical signs, without recurrence after therapy discontinuation.
