An infection with the rare mycosis Chrysosporium parvum was diagnosed in a European beaver (Castor fiber) shot in northern Sweden. The animal was in normal body condition and no signs of disease were observed. In the lungs a large number of nodules, up to 5 mm diameter, were observed. A large number of adiaspores were observed in the interstitium of the lungs and in the mediastinal lymph node. A chronic inflammatory reaction dominated by mononuclear leukocytes and giant cells was observed around the spores. This is the first report of adiaspiromycosis (Chrysosporium parvum) in the European beaver.
