Disease that shows keloidal-like granulomas in humans and dolphins has been known by several different names, such as Jorge Lobo disease (4), Lobo's disease (3,5,22), lobomycosis (1,6,13,16,19,23,24), and lacaziosis (11,12,14,15).
Suspected acquired immunodeficiency in an Atlantic bottlenosed dolphin with chronic-active hepatitis and lobomycosis.
Lobomycosis is a subcutaneous mycosis caused by Lacazia loboi (L.
The diagnosis of keloidal lobomycosis in a patient with a previous relapsing lepromatous leprosy and leprosy reaction Type 2 was made.
Provisional diagnosis on the basis of above findings was made as keloidal lobomycosis
, mycetoma, lupus vulgaris and atypical mycobacterial infection.

-like disease in bottlenose dolphin, Venezuela.
(lacaziosis) is a chronic, granulomatous, fungal infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissues that affects humans and members of the family Delphinidae (1-6).
We report 2 cases of lobomycosis
in offshore (pelagic) bottlenose dolphins stranded off North Carolina in 2005 and 2008.
To the Editor: Lobomycosis
is a chronic dermal infectious disease affecting humans and some species of dolphins but not, to date, freshwater dolphins.
Along the same evolutionary lines, the presence of lobomycosis
in these dolphins poses the likelihood that the agent of the disease has found ways to infect a broader array of the species than we know in the same ecologic community.

(keloidal blastomycosis): case reports and overview.
Our case represents the first published report of imported human lobomycosis
in Canada and the fifth in an industrialized country.
