Cerebral phaeohyphomycosis was diagnosed in a 9-year-old spayed dog that had a series of epileptic convulsions a day before death. About 6 weeks before her death, she had been treated for severe demodectic mange. During this period, persistent leukopenia, lymphocytopenia, and thrombocytopenia were found by blood analyses. At necropsy, multiple large pyogranulomatous lesions were found in the cerebrum and meninges. Dematiaceous fungi with brown, branching, septate hyphae and budding yeasts were found within tissue cells and in the necrotic areas.
