Ein Fall von akuter disseminierter Mucor-Enzephalitis bei einem Rind


Schönmann, M; Thoma, R; Braun, Ueli (1997). Ein Fall von akuter disseminierter Mucor-Enzephalitis bei einem Rind. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 139(11):490-494.

Abstract

The case of a 2 1/2 year old Swiss Braunvieh heifer suffering from an acute disseminated mycotic encephalitis caused by a Mucorales spp. infection is presented. Clinical signs and analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (increased protein concentration and pleocytosis) were typical for an acute encephalitis, probably due to a listeriosis. The histological examination of the brain revealed an acute disseminated thrombo-embolic encephalomyelitis due to a fungi infection, morphologically consistent with Mucorales spp. The occurrence of bovine cerebral mucormycosis is rare and therefore the veterinarian should become aware of a case which was clinically not distinguishable from a listeriosis.
