The Persian squirrel (Sciurus anomalus) is a small-sized rodent which lives mainly in oak forests in Iran and is also kept as a pet animal. Dermatophytes are of potential zoonotic importance in squirrels. The present study describes isolation of Epidermophyton floccosum, an important dermatophyte from a clinically infected Persian squirrel and represents the first report of its isolation.
