- Four cases of canine blastomycosis are described. Biopsy specimens were examined in two of the cases. Typical granulomas and microabscesses containing yeast forms of Blastomyces dermatitidis were seen in the testicle, prostate, kidney and bladder. Complete necropsies are described in two dogs with granulomas in the lung, eyes, prostate, testicle and meninges. The distribution of the lesions indicates a systemic infection.
