    ABSTRACT: Trichophyton mentagrophytes var. erinacei is rarely isolated from dogs with dermatophytosis. It is a zoophilic dermatophyte transmitted by hedgehogs and, in contrast to other dermatophyte species, is characterised by a severe suppurative and inflammatory response known as kerion. A 5-year-old male mongrel dog was referred to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital with a 2-week history of a localised pruritic and suppurative alopecic lesion on the scrotum. Routine blood tests, peripheral blood smears, multiple skin scrapings and bacteriological culture did not reveal any abnormalities. However, Trichophyton mentagrophytes var. erinacei was isolated from a fungal culture. The presence of hedgehogs around the daily walking areas of the dog suggested the possibility of direct or indirect contact of the dog with hedgehogs. Fungicidal treatment was implemented with oral itraconazole (5 mg/kg once daily) and topical application of clotrimazole (twice daily) for a month. The scrotal lesion healed completely and hair grew back within a month. No recurrence occurred during a 4 month follow-up. T. mentagrophytes var. erinacei should be included in the differential diagnosis of suppurative scrotal skin lesions of dogs, which have come into possible contact with hedgehogs. Keywords: dog; Trichophyton mentagrophytes var. erinacei; hedgehog; kerion

    ABSTRACT: e present study was an in vitro analysis of the dynamics of bovine mammary gland neutrophil apop- tosis based on the detection of morphological changes. e neutrophils were isolated from mammary glands of five virgin heifers. e mammary glands were lavaged, the suspensions were then bacteriologically examined, and total and differential cell counts were made. e cells were cultivated in vitro for 4 hours. After 2, 3 and 4 hours of cultivation, they were panoptically stained, and the proportions of apoptotic neutrophils and trypan blue positive neutrophils were determined. Neutrophil apoptosis and impaired cytoplasmic membrane integrity of neutrophils were already observed in the mammary gland lavages (11.9% and 0.8%, respectively). During the cultivation, a progressive increase in the number of apoptotic neutrophils in various stages of apoptosis - karyopyknosis, zeiosis and apoptotic bodies - was observed. Karyopyknotic neutrophils represented a dominant part of the apoptotic neutrophil population in the course of the whole cultivation. e most intensive increase was observed in zeiosis, whereas the levels of apoptotic bodies remained the same. After 4 hours of cultivation, 31.7% apoptotic neutrophils and 9.8% trypan blue positive neutrophils (i.e. Secondary necrotic cells) were found. e results of this work show that spontaneous apoptosis and secondary neutrophil necrosis must be taken into account during in vitro cultiva- tions of bovine mammary gland neutrophils.
