Cryptococcosis naturally occurs in animals, and becomes a life-threatening disease in species such as cats, dogs, horses and koalas. This is the first case of cryptococcosis in a three-year-old Labrador retriever dog reported in Colombia, with description of the clinical case, characterization of the fungal strain and search of the fungus in the environment surrounding the animal. Cryptococcus neoformans VNI was isolated from animal samples, as well as from Eucalyptus trees present in the environment surrounding the dog.
