A 12-year-old Quarter horse gelding was presented for evaluation of severe right forelimb lameness,
2 draining tracts over the lateral aspect of the right proximal antebrachium, and weight loss. A presumptive diagnosis
of blastomycotic osteomyelitis was established based on radiographs and cytology of the exudate. This
diagnosis was confirmed at necropsy.
