Untersuchungen zum Vorkommen von Elaphostrongylus sp. im Gehirn von Ziegen und Hirschen aus dem Kanton Tessin


Pusterla, Nicola; Caplazi, P; Hertzberg, Hubertus; Viglezio, M; Pospischil, Andreas; Braun, Ueli (1998). Untersuchungen zum Vorkommen von Elaphostrongylus sp. im Gehirn von Ziegen und Hirschen aus dem Kanton Tessin. Wiener Tierärztliche Monatsschrift, 85(9):298-302.

Abstract

The aim of the study was to examine the incidence of Elaphostrongylus cervi in the brain of sixty-five goats and fifty-nine red deer. The brains were also examined for neurohistological lesions. In the subdural space of the brain of five red deer a female nematode was recovered and identified as Elaphostrongylus sp. The histopathological examination of the brains revealed significantly more inflammatory, degenerative or combined lesions in goats than in red deer. Fourty-nine red deer and thirty-eight goats had no lesions in the brain. The lesions were minimal and consisted exclusively of nonpurulent infiltrations. No etiological agent could be found for the neurological changes. However Elaphostrongylus is able to produce similar lesions in specific as well as in nonspecific hosts and represents a likely cause for the histopathological findings.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
