Abstract: 

A 9-month-old Belgian shepherd dog was evaluated for chronic nasal discharge. Oral examination revealed the absence of the left upper canine tooth. Radiographs showed impaction of this tooth into the left nasal cavity with caudal displacement of the tooth root. Rhinoscopy demonstrated the presence of fungal colonies. The impacted tooth was surgically removed and the nasal cavity flushed with enilconazole 1%. No recurrence was observed during a follow-up period of two years.
