My now 25 yr old gelding contracted cryptococcus neoformans in his nasal cavity (rare fungus found in soil polluted by bird droppings, horse inhales it as dust/spores, normally causes no issues - must be the "perfect storm" for horse to contract it; not passable to other horses) and received proper treatment (surgery/medications) for it in late 2009. He is doing well, although does not have proper air flow out of the affected nostril due to scar tissue that lessens airflow out of one nostril, and basically "rearranged" what his nasal/sinus cavity is shaped like. My horse is otherwise perfectly happy and healthy, and does well at his 6 month checkups.
I was wondering if anyone has had a horse with this fungus and what your long-term outcome was. Thanks!
