This clinical case concerns a male dog of Pointer breed, 10 years of age. The clinical examination revealed severe tenderness and a tension in the abdominal walls. The ultrasound examination detected fluid in the peritoneal cavity. The fluid collected from the peritoneal cavity displayed typical features of exudative fluid. In the cytological examination of the fluid, numerous stimulated endothelial cells, lymphocytes, and neutrophils were found. In the microbiological examination of the peritoneal fluid, Candida albicans was cultured. On the basis of the clinical signs, laboratory test results of the peritoneal fluid, and microbiological culture, the diagnosis of fungal peritonitis was made. © TÜBİTAK.
