An adult male rhesus monkey (Macaca mulata) developed anorexia, ataxia, dullness, coughing, and some elevated body temperature and died a week after the initiation of such symptoms. At necropsy the monkey's physical condition was found to be normal. Body weight was 18.3kg and the only notable gross lesion was the appearance of acute pneumonia with multiple nodules. Histopathologic observation of the tissues obtained from this animal revealed the features of acute primary pulmonary blastomycosis.
