Abstract

Skin lesions on an Atlantic bottlenosed dolphin, captured off the coast of Florida, were investigated and found to be histologically and microbiologically indistinguishable from those caused in humans by . All attempts to isolate the etiologic agent or to transmit the infection to mice and monkeys ended in failure. Sight records of other suspected dolphin cases of lobomycosis in Florida waters are described along with citations of two previously confirmed and published dolphin infections.
