The present investigation was aimed to diagnose the mycoflora associated with dermal mycoses infected camels in the Bikaner city and the nearby villages, Rajasthan. In this investigation 16 camels infected with dermal mycoses irrespective of sex and age were included. Out of 16 infected cases, two cases were found infected with cutaneous histoplasmosis caused by Histoplasma capsulatum. Cutaneous histoplasmosis appeared as small multiple nodular lesions, whitish to gray mainly found over the neck, axillaries and legs. In addition, alopecia, itching and emaciation were also noticed. The cutaneous histoplasmosis in both camel calves was confirmed by cultural and microscopic examination.
