Fungi are parasitic, spore-producing organisms that obtain their sustenance by absorbing food from their hosts. Many species of fungus exist in the environment, but only some of these can cause infections. The chief source of most fungal infections is soil, where they can be acquired via inhalation, ingestion, or through the skin.1
Certain fungal infections can cause disease in healthy horses, while others require a host that is immunocompromised by stressors such as poor nutrition, bacterial or viral infections in order to cause infection. Fungal infections may be localized or they may affect the entire body (systemic or generalized).
Some common fungal infections of horses include:
Ringworm is one of the most common fungal skin infections affecting horses. It is caused by a dermatophyte fungus (usually Microsporum or Trichophyton) and presents with skin lesions which usually start as small raised spots from which the hair is lost.2,3 The lesions can spread from these spots and become thickened and scabrous.1 Often, only one to three lesions may be seen, but if left untreated, the condition can become extensive. Ringworm is highly contagious and can spread to humans.
