A 6-year-old male Basset hound weighing 9.3 kg was presented with a history of severe mucopurulent discharge from the bilateral fronto-nasal area which had been developed progressively over 1 year. At admission, the physical state and appetite of the patient was poor. There was bilateral thick and mucoprulent discharge on the fronto-orbital area with fistula opening in the skin over the frontal bone. A sample of exudate was cultured and fungi were isolated. Radiographically, there was an increased diffuse opacity of the frontal sinus with decreased definition and a thickening of the mucous membrane lining the sinus. This case was finally diagnosed as chronic fungal frontal sinusitis. After surgical obliteration of the sinus, local and systemic antifungal therapy with chlorhexidine and ketoconazole were applicated. The dog had gradually recovered the physical state and appetite.
Key Words: basset hound, severe mucopurulent discharge, fronto-orbital area, chronic fungal frontal sinusitis
