Abstract

  • Trichosporon beigelii is widely distributed in nature and is classically associated with white piedra, a mycosis that may involve the hair of the human body.
  • Intramammary infections caused by T beigelii may be fatal in cows; the prevalence in affected dairy herds may be high.
  • Affected cows may have hyperthermia, swelling of the udder, and substantially decreased milk production or agalactia.
  • Intramammary infections caused by yeast, including T beigelii, may also be associated with high bacterial counts in bulk-tank milk.
