Post-mortem examinations were performed on two marine toads, one animal showing neurological disorders and the other multifocal dermatitis. In one case, lesions consisted of a severe granulomatous encephalomyelitis and in the other of multiple granulomas in the nasal cavity, lungs, heart, bone marrow, ovaries and skin. Histologically, the lesions revealed varying amounts of dark brown fungal elements, predominantly sclerotic bodies indicative of a mycotic infection due to a pigmented fungus.
