A 2 years old male Persian cat referred to the Veterinary Clinic Faculty of Veterinary medicine, Universitas Gadjah Mada with multi-focal circular non-pruritic skin lesions and hair loss mainly on the head and ears. A complete series of dermatologic tests such as Wood’s light examination, direct microscopic examination, and fungal culture were performed. The cat was treated with itraconazole dosage orally for a period of 20 days and ketoconazole topical for 35 days, respectively. Thirty five days after treatments the cat showed reduction of lesions.
