Granulomatös-nekrotisierende Pneumonie durch Schimmelpilzinfektion bei einer Ziege


Wapf, P; Ossent, P; Scharf, G; Braun, U (2011). Granulomatös-nekrotisierende Pneumonie durch Schimmelpilzinfektion bei einer Ziege. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 153(10):463-466.

Abstract

This case report describes the clinical and postmortem findings in a 2.5-year-old goat with necrotizing granulomatous pneumonia. The goat was referred to our clinic because of swelling of the head and neck, which was unresponsive to treatment, dysphagia, and deterioration in general condition. Thoracic radiographs showed two soft tissue densities, about 10 cm in diameter, in the left caudodorsal lung. The goat was euthanized and a necropsy was carried out. The two lesions in the left caudodorsal lung were round, firm and clearly demarcated from the surrounding lung tissue. They contained purulent material and compromised about 70 % of the diaphragmatic lung lobe. Histological examination of the lesions revealed a dense network of hyphae characteristic of Mucorales spp.
