Abstract

A 7-year-old female cross-breed dog presented with a non-regenerative anaemia. Disseminated intra-abdominal cryptococcosis was diagnosed by ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration cytology. Complete blood count and bone marrow cytology revealed microcytic hypochromic iron-deficiency anaemia and severe thrombocytosis (> 1 million platelets/μl). Post-mortem examination and histopathology confirmed the diagnosis and revealed multiple organ involvement. Both gastrointestinal lesions and absence of respiratory tract cryptococcal granulomas suggest an oral instead of nasal infection route.
