Red deer fawn with open abscess on both sides in front of hind legs and tumor on underside. Its been 5 weeks and has not got better.



I have administered LA 300 at 3ml 3 times. Several DVMs have looked at with all stating they have never seen anything like it. I will try and post pics or will email. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Panniculitis-like suggests a cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.



PYOGRANULOMATOUS: an inflammatory process in which there is infiltration of polymorphonuclear cells into a more chronic area of inflammation characterized by mononuclear cells, macrophages, lymphocytes and possibly plasma cells.



A hypha is a long, branching filamentous structure of a fungus, and also of unrelated Actinobacteria. In most fungi, hyphae are the main mode of vegetative growth, and are collectively called a mycelium; yeasts are unicellular fungi that do not grow as hyphae/ Lesions containing hypha are common in aquatic animals and some reptiles.



So if I read the diagnosis correctly, It was a fungal infection that matasticized. Is that what your take on the diagnosis is?

Poor thing, I am sorry to hear that you had to put the fawn down. So, if Scott is right (99.9% of the time he is , hi Scott!) should he have been put down?
