Szeredi, L; Tenk, M; Jánosi, S; Pálfi, V; Hotzel, H; Sachse, K; Pospischil, A; Bozsó, M; Glávits, R; Molnár, T (2008). A survey of equine abortion and perinatal foal losses in Hungary during a three-year period (1998-2000). Acta veterinaria Hungarica, 56(3):353-367.

Abstract

Cases of equine abortion and perinatal foal losses were investigated in Hungary during a three-year period (1998-2000). Samples from aborted equine fetuses and newborn foals (total n = 96) were examined using bacteriological, virological, pathological, immunohistochemical (IHC), molecular biological and serological methods. The cause of abortion and perinatal foal loss was identified in 67/96 cases (70%); viral infection was found in 22 (23%), viral and bacterial coinfection in 1 (1%), bacterial infection in 23 (24%), protozoan infection in 1 (1%) and fungal infection in 2 cases (2%). Morphological lesions suggestive of infection were recorded in 2 (2%) and non-infectious causes in 16 cases (17%).
