Abstract

A 4-year-old neutered male golden retriever was diagnosed with osseous blastomycosis of the distal left forelimb by means of radiographs and histopathology. Presumptive bacterial pneumonia and left forelimb lameness had been diagnosed 2 y previously, at which time bone scintigraphy revealed increased uptake in the distal left forelimb, but radiographs showed no detectable lesion. Though not specific, bone scintigraphy appears more sensitive than radiography in identifying early lesions of fungal osteomyelitis in dogs.
