In recent years opportunistic infections due to microsporidial organisms have become increasingly important in immunocompromised people. Infected animals could serve as reservoirs of such infections. A case of generalized encephalitozoonosis in a young kitten is reported. Diagnosis was established by histopathological, immunohistochemical and molecular biological investigations demonstrating characteristic lesions and DNA of Encephalitozoon cuniculi in formalin-fixed and paraffin wax-embedded tissue sections. Infections due to E. cuniculi are not common in cats, but a potential role of domestic cats in transmission of the infectious agent cannot be excluded.
