Auteur(s):

Samenvatting: 
This case report describes a two-year-old red and white East Flemish cow with an aggressive angiomyxoma (AA). The cow was presented for examination because of vague complaints: dullness, loss of weight, diarrhea. Rectal examination revealed the presence of multiple large, undefinable masses in the pelvic cavity. The cow died the day after the clinical examination and was autopsied. The histopathological examination revealed an aggressive angiomyxoma. This is, to the best of our knowledge, the first description of an AA in animals.

Auteur(s): 
S. Roels, E. Vanopdenbosch
Samenvatting: 
An outbreak of TSE/scrapie is described in a flock of Hampshire Down sheep in Belgium. After the diagnosis was confirmed in an animal that had been sold, screening was performed on 16 other farms, that also had bought animals from the farm at issue. Half of these herds proved to be positive. In the primary focus, two sheep were affected. Genotyping for the determination of the sensibility to TSE/scrapie was performed.

Titel: 
A NATURALLY OCCURRING CASE OF EPIZOOTIC ENTEROPATHY IN A SPECIFIC-PATHOGEN-FREE RABBIT COLONY
Auteur(s): 
D. Vandekerchove, S. Roels, G. Charlier
Samenvatting: 
In 1996 and 1997 a new epizootic enteric rabbit disease appeared in Europe. Since then the disease has also been reported in other parts of the world. Its main symptoms are caused by paresis of the intestinal tract. The causative agent is still unknown. The disease has been reported in meat rabbits and does, as well as in pet rabbits. The present report concerns a naturally occurring case of this disease in a specific-pathogen-free (SPF) rabbit colony. In the intestinal contents of one animal sacrificed for thorough examination, rotavirus and an apathogenic type of Escherichia coli were detected. From the ileal wall Providencia rettgeri was isolated, which is unlikely, however, to be of pathogenic significance. Histological and electron-microscopical analyses did not reveal any pathognomonic lesions.

Auteur(s):

Samenvatting: 
This paper describes an inguinal hernia in a 12-year-old gelding. The cause of the symptoms was not detected during clinical examination and the diagnosis was made during surgery. Most probably, the rarity of the condition was the underlying reason for this diagnostic failure.
