ⓘ Sagenomella

Sagenomella is a genus of filamentous Ascomycota fungus that has reported to cause systemic illness in animals. The genus was circumscribed by Walter Gams in 1978.

Sagenomella chlamydospora was reported to cause systemic disease in dogs.

They are generally considered not dermatophytic fungi. Both skeletal and visceral phaeohyphomycosis in connection with the formation of granuloma has been reported, and iatrogenic infections associated with wound dehiscence is common. Clinical signs Sagenomella SPP. infections are often vague and in most cases resulted in a report of sudden death as a consistent sign. Thick walled fungal hyphae are usually detected in smears-prints from lesions of the skin. Staining with iodic acid-Schiffs stain is usually confirmatory.
