    Post Fatal necrotizing fasciitis and myositis in a captive common bottlenose dolphin

    Fatal necrotizing fasciitis and myositis in a captive common bottlenose dolphin
    (Tursiops truncatus) associated with Streptococcus agalactiae


    Abstract.
    A common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) was presented for necropsy after acute onset

    of gastrointestinal signs and cutaneous lesions that rapidly progressed to death. Gross and microscopic findings
    were characterized by locally extensive severe necrohemorrhagic fasciitis and cellulitis, and severe necrotizing
    myositis in the head and dorsocranial thorax, with numerous disseminated gram-positive cocci.


    Streptococcus

    agalactiae


    was isolated from the lesions and from visceral organs (liver and lung), and it was identified by

    standard microbiology techniques. This communication is the first report of necrotizing fasciitis in a marine
    mammal associated with


    S. agalactiae.
