Abstract
We present gross and histologic evidence of coinfection in amphibians by fungal-like parasites of the order Dermocystida (Amphibiocystidium sp.) and the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. The condition was observed in frogs Hypsiboas pulchellus (Hylidae) from Uruguay in 2009 to 2012. This report is the first of dermocystids in Neotropical amphibians since 1940.
