Abstract: 
A 4-year-old Belgian Warmblood mare suffering from pelvic flexure impaction was diagnosed with ateratoma of the left ovary. The enlarged ovary was identified several days after treatment of the impaction.Surgical removal of the affected ovary was performed and histopathological examination confirmed thepresence of a teratoma. The features of another ovarian teratoma, which was an accidental finding at slaughter,are also described.

Title: 
Tick-borne encephalitis in Europe: Review of an emerging zoonosis
Author(s): 
S. ROELANDT, P. HEYMAN, P. TAVERNIER, S. ROELS
Abstract: 
Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) is a highly pathogenic flavivirus and the most important arthropodbornevirus in Europe. Considerable increases in human tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) incidence in endemiccountries and the emergence of the disease in several Western and Northern European countries, as well asin the European canine population, have made TBEV an increasing public health risk. Autochthonous TBEhas never been reported in Belgium, despite the presence of suitable climate, environment, vectors and hosts.Though Belgian citizens are increasingly traveling to endemic areas, clinicians do not routinely test for TBEin human meningoencephalitis cases. In Belgium, TBE is not notifiable and surveillance is currently almostnon-existent. If TBE were to emerge in Belgium, it could pose a significant threat to public health. Targetedserological screening of sentinel animals (dogs and wildlife) would contribute in a cost-effective way to acontinuous epidemiosurveillance program for TBEV in Belgium.

Title: 
Palatoschisis in the dog: developmental mechanisms and etiology
Author(s): 
F. VAN DEN BERGHE, P. CORNILLIE, L. STEGEN, B. VAN GOETHEM, P. SIMOENS
Abstract: 
Palatoschisis is a frequently occurring birth defect in man and domestic animals. It is caused by a failureof the elevation, apposition or fusion of the lateral palatine processes, resulting in the persistence of a slit-likeopening between the oral and nasal cavities. Due to swallowing difficulties, this condition eventually leads tosevere malnutrition and life-threatening aspiration pneumonia unless adequate treatment is provided. Theformation of the palate is the result of a sequence of well-regulated steps. Palatoschisis can result from anyinterference with local cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis, the aberrant production ofmucopolysaccharides or interference with the active extension of the neck. It results from a single or combinedaction of genetic, mechanical and/or environmental teratogenic factors. The complex etiology of a cleft palate,its potential hereditary characteristics and possible association with other congenital defects should becarefully considered prior to any corrective therapy.
