Mycopathologia. 1975 Feb 28;55(1):13-5.

Saprophytic occurrence of Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Microsporum gypseum in the coats of healthy laboratory animals. (Preliminary report).


A group of 199 healthy laboratory animals, comprising 63 guinea pigs; 58 white mice. 47 rats and 31 rabbits, was sampled for the presence of pathogenic dermatophytes. T. mentagrophytes, var. granulare, was isolated in 10% (5-guinea pigs, 6 mice, 6 rats and 2 rabbits) and M. gypseum was found in 7 animals (3 guinea pigs, 3 mice and one rat). No ringworm lesions were observed in the respective animals. This is the first report on such findings in Israel.
