Visceral form of pseudotuberculosis in a dromedary with biovar equi


Prohaska, S; Regenscheit, N; Hilbe, M; Gerspach, C; Wittenbrink, M M (2013). Visceral form of pseudotuberculosis in a dromedary with biovar equi. Veterinary Record Case Reports, 1:e000010.

Abstract

A five-year-old male dromedary died with symptoms of cachexia and was subjected to etiologic examination. During necropsy, a pyogranulomatous hepatitis, a multifocal granulomatous lymphadenitis and subcutaneous abscess formation in the caudal xyphoid region of the cranial abdomen were identified. Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis biovar equi was isolated in pure culture from the liver. The visceral form of pseudotuberculosis with biovar equi causing gross liver lesions has not previously been reported in dromedaries.
