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.

TrendTerms

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.
