Most reports of systemic mycosis in cats describe local or generalized infection by the yeast Cryptococcus neoformans. Eight reports were reviewed by Cordes and Royal ( 1967), and at least another three have been published since then (Okoski and Hasegawa, 1968; Campbell et al 1970; Clark and Roubin, 1970). Two other yeasts, Histoplasma capsulatum and Blastomyces dermatiditis, have been reported as causing pneumonia in cats (Akun, 1950; Sheldon, 1966). All of these yeasts are recognized pathogens, often primary, in man and animals. Other systemic mycoses reported in the cat include pneumonia associated with Aspergillus spp. (Sautter et al 1955; Pakes et al 1967) and enteritis associated with Candida albicans (Schiefer and Weiss, 1959; Schiefer, 1965; Langheinrich and Nielsen, 1971), and Aspergillus spp. (Schiefer, 1965). These fungi are generally commensal except in the presence of a primary debilitating condition. This report describes pneumonia associated with a fungus which resembled Aspergillus spp. and enteritis associated with a fungus which resembled Candida spp.
