ABSTRACT
A short review was carried out about rare mycosis described in pets in Italy. Cases of pseudomycetoma, mycetoma, phaeoiphomycosis and hyalohyphomyco-sis were reported, and the difficult found in veterinary medicine that can cause a underestimate of some mycotic diseases are pointed out we can conclude that, in animals, mycoses some time are misdiagnosed and, perhaps could be more frequent that we know; for this reasons they should not rejected in differential diagnosis.
