Abstract : This report documents the fifth reported occurrance of cerebral phaeophyphomycosis in cats. Because mycotic encephalitis was not considered in the differential diagnosis, fungal cultures were not performed. The most likely etiologic agent, based on site specificity and morphology, is Xylohypha (Cladosporium) bantiana. The most common route of transmission is by aerosol. Although rare, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of slowly progressive neurologic disease, especially in immunosuppressed individuals. (sdw)
