Course Overview

This course focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases caused by fungi, parasites and viruses. The superficial mycosis (dermatophytosis, Malassezia), but also the less common subcutaneous mycosis (sporotrichosis, chromomycosis, hyalomycosis) and systemic mycosis (cryptococcosis) are discussed in depth. The main diseases caused by ectoparasites in dogs and cats (scabies, notoedric mange, demodicosis, cheyletiellosis, otoacariasis) and their diagnosis, treatment and prevention are also reviewed. Special attention is devoted to canine leishmaniasis, to its etiopathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment and prevention (vaccines). Finally, cutaneous viral infections of dogs and cats are discussed, with a special focus on papillomavirus infections.
