Cutaneous neosporosis manifested by pyogranulomatous ulcerative dermatitis was diagnosed in an 11-year-old male Boxer. Histology revealed numerous intralesional protozoal tachysoites within macrophages and neutrophils. Occasionally, tachysoites were observed within endothelial and epithelial cells. Infection with Neospora caninum was confirmed by avidin biotin complex immunohistochemistry using a Neospora-specific monoclonal antibody. Cutaneous neosporosis is rare and has only been previously described in three cases. This report represents the first case of canine neosporosis in Israel and the Middle East.
