Trichophyton mentagrophytes sebagai agen penyebab dermatofitosis pada kambing
Causative agent of dermatophytosis in goats and sheep is usually Trichophyton, the most common is Trichophyton verrucosum. The aim of this study was to isolate and identify causative agent of dermatophytosis in the Peranakan Etawah (PE) goats. Scrapped skin from the PE goats, that was presumed suffering dermatophytosis was collected as a sample. By direct microscopic examination of the sample, septat hypha and macroconidia with shape that characterize the Trichophyton mold were found. The result of sample isolation on the Dermasel agar showed that the mold colony grow after 5 days. Based on macroscopic and microscopic morphology study, the mold was identified as T. mer.tagrophytes.
