Canine dermatitis due to Straelensia cynotis (case report)
`Ivermectine kills everything` was a popular slogan some years ago. This dog from Portugal, suffering from a highly pruritic dermatitis with numerous larval mites in the hair follicles unfortunately did not respond well to this drug - in opposite to other highly pruritic mites like Sarcoptes scabiei.

This case report describes a highly pruritic, papular and crusted dermatitis affecting the dorsum of a dog and microscopically diagnosed as dermatitis induced by Straelensia cynotis.

Histologically, each papule was characterized by a dilated hair follicle with marked pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia, perifollicular mucinosis and an abundant mononuclear infiltration by plasma and mast cells.

Each dilated follicle contained a larval mite.

A therapy including systemic ivermectins and oral antibiotic therapy was initiated, but the clinical response was poor.

To the best of the authors` knowledge, this is the first report of straelensiosis in Portugal, and the second in Europe.

Fluorescein sodium-guided resection of intracranial lesions in dogs
Twenty-two dogs with intracranial lesions were enrolled in this prospective case series. The objectives were to evaluate the safety of an intraoperative fluorescein sodium (FS) injection and elucidate the relationships between the MRI findings, pathological diagnoses, and intraoperative staining characteristics of intracranial lesions in 22 dogs.
