#1 - Current trends in bovine abortion in Argentina

Abstract in English:

Bovine abortion is an important cause of significant economic losses in beef and dairy herds. This syndrome is usually difficult to diagnose. The aim of this study was to characterize bovine abortion causes in Argentina by standard diagnosis procedures (histology, bacterial and viral isolation) and other diagnostic tests like direct fluorescent antibody test (DFAT), fetal serology, immunohistochemistry (IHC), and PCR, showing their specific advantages and limitations. Necropsies were performed in 150 aborted bovine fetuses submitted to the diagnostic laboratories of Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA) Balcarce, Argentina. Etiological diagnosis was confirmed in 78 fetuses (52% of the cases). Most causes of abortion were of infectious origin, being Neospora caninum (14.67%), Campylobacter fetus sp. (9.33%), Leptospira spp. (7.33%) and Brucella abortus (6.65%) the main microorganisms identified. Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) and bovine herpes virus (BHV) were diagnosed in 2 (1.33%) and 3 (2%) cases, respectively. This study showed a better characterization of bovine abortion compared with previous researches done on this topic.

O aborto bovino é uma causa importante de perdas econômicas significativas em rebanhos bovinos e leiteiros. Esta síndrome é geralmente difícil de diagnosticar. O objetivo deste estudo foi caracterizar o aborto bovino na Argentina por procedimentos diagnósticos de rotina (histologia, isolamento viral e bacteriana) e outros testes diagnósticos como ensaio directo de anticorpos fluorescentes (DFAT), sorologia fetal, imuno-histoquica (IHC), e PCR; mostrando suas vantagens e limitações específicas. As necropsias foram realizadas em 150 fetos bovinos abortados submetidos aos laboratórios de diagnóstico do Instituto Nacional de Tecnologia Agropecuária (INTA) de Balcarce, na Argentina. O diagnóstico etiológico foi confirmado em 78 fetos (52% dos casos). A maioria das causas de aborto foram de origem infecciosa, sendo Neospora caninum (14,67%), Campylobacter fetus sp. (9,33%), Leptospira spp. (7,33%) e Brucella abortus (6,65%) os principais microrganismos identificados. O vírus da diarréia viral bovina (BVDV) e o herpesvírus bovino (BHV) foram diagnosticados em 2 (1,33%) e 3 (2%) casos, respectivamente. Este estudo mostrou uma melhor caracterização do aborto bovino em comparação com pesquisas anteriores feita sobre este tema.

ABSTRACT.- García J.A., Cantón G.J., García B.L., Micheloud J.F., Campero C.M., Späth E.J.A. & Odriozola E.R. 2017. Retrospective analysis of cattle poisoning in Argentina (2000-2013). Pesquisa Veterinária Brasileira 37(3):210-214. Estación Experimental Agropecuaria Balcarce (EEA), Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA), Ruta Nacional 226 Km 73,5, (7620) Balcarce, Buenos Aires, Argentina. E-mail: garciajuanagustin@hotmail.com A retrospective analysis (2000 to 2013) of cattle poisoning caused by toxic plants and other compounds was carried out in the Pampas region of Argentina by the Animal Health Group of INTA-EEA, Balcarce. During this period, 1263 reports of diseases of different etiologies (infectious, parasitic, toxic, metabolic and miscellaneous) were recorded in cattle, by collecting anamnestic, clinical and pathological information. A toxic etiology was diagnosed in 21.1% of these reports. Iatrogenic poisoning caused by ionophores was the most frequently recorded etiology. Consumption of toxic plants (Wedelia glauca, Solanum glaucophyllum, among others), mycotoxins (Claviceps purpurea, Claviceps paspali, Epichloë coenophiala, among others), and plants producing cyanide and nitrates/nitrites were also commonly diagnosed. The high frequency of toxic episodes and the difficulties in their diagnosis by practitioners in our livestock production systems emphasizes the importance of this report.

Abstract in English:

ABSTRACT.- Marin M.S., Morrell E.L., Pérez S.E., Leunda M.R., Moore D.P., Jones L.R., Campero C.M. & Odeón A.C. 2013. Concomitant infection of Neospora caninum and Bovine Herpesvirus type 5 in spontaneous bovine abortions. Pesquisa Veterinária Brasileira 33(11):1291-1295. Área de Investigación en Producción y Sanidad Animal, Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA), Estación Experimental Agropecuaria Balcarce, Ruta 226 Km 73.5 (7620), Balcarce, Buenos Aires, Argentina. E-mail: aodeon@balcarce.inta.gov.ar Bovine Herpesvirus type 5 (BoHV-5) has not been conclusively demonstrated to cause bovine abortion. Brain lesions produced by Neospora caninum and Bovine Herpesvirus type 1 (BoHV-1) exhibit common features. Therefore, careful microscopic evaluation and additional diagnostic procedures are required to achieve an accurate final etiological diagnosis. The aim of the present work was to investigate the occurrence of infections due to BoHV-1, BoHV-5 and N. caninum in 68 cases of spontaneous bovine abortions which showed microscopic lesions in the fetal central nervous system. This study allowed the identification of 4 (5.9%) fetuses with dual infection by BoHV-5 and N. caninum and 33 (48.5%) cases in which N. caninum was the sole pathogen identified. All cases were negative to BoHV-1. The results of this study provide evidence that dual infection by BoHV-5 and N. caninum occur during pregnancy in cattle; however, the role of BoHV-5 as a primary cause of bovine abortion needs further research. Molecular diagnosis of BoHV-5 and N. caninum confirmed the importance of applying complementary assays to improve the sensitivity of diagnosing bovine abortion.

E-mail: aodeon@balcarce.inta.gov.ar Não está demonstrado até ao momento, que o Herpesvírus bovino tipo 5 (BoHV-5) seja um agente causal de aborto bovino. Uma vez que as lesões cerebrais tanto de Neospora caninum como de Herpesvírus bovino tipo 1(BoHV-1) têm características similares, é necessária uma avaliação microscópica cuidadosa, bem como exames laboratoriais adicionais, para obter um diagnóstico final preciso. O objetivo do presente trabalho foi investigar a presença de infeções por BoHV-1, BoHV-5 e N. caninum em 68 casos de aborto espontâneo, nos quais se verificaram lesões microscópicas no sistema nervoso central. Foram encontrados 4 (5,9%) fetos com infeção simultânea de BoHV-5 e N. caninum e 33 (48,5%) casos com infeção exclusiva de N. caninum. Todos os casos foram negativos a BoHV-1. Os resultados deste estudo demonstram que a infeção dual por BoHV-5 y N. caninum está presente durante a gestçao dos bovinos. Apesar disso, o papel de BoHV-5 como agente primário causal de aborto, carece de mais investigaçao. O diagnóstico molecular de BoHV-5 e N. caninum confirmou a importância de se aplicar ensaios complementares para melhorar a sensibilidade do diagnóstico de aborto bovino.

ABSTRACT.- Margineda C.A., Odriozola E., Moreira A.R., Cantón G., Micheloud J.F., Gardey P., Spetter M. & Campero C.M. 2013. Atypical actinobacillosis in bulls in Argentina: granulomatous dermatitis and lymphadenitis. Pesquisa Veterinária Brasileira 33(1):1-4. Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA), Estación Experimental Agropecuaria Balcarce, Ruta 226 Km 73,5 (7620) Balcarce, Argentina. E-mail: eodriozola@balcarce.inta.gov.ar Actinobacillosis is a common cause of sporadic infection in cattle. It was mostly characterized as a pyogranulomatous inflammation of the tongue, but also soft tissues as lymph nodes, other digestive tract localization and skin. The aim of this study was to describe an episode of granulomatous dermatitis and lymphadenitis affecting a bull herd in Argentina during 2010. Actinobacillus lignieresii was isolated from samples collected from one of the affected bulls, and characteristic lesions were observed. Lesions other than ‘wooden tongue’ are usually uncommon; however, actinobacillosis should be included as a differential diagnosis for cutaneous diseases.

Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA), Estación Experimental Agropecuaria Balcarce, Ruta 226 Km 73,5 (7620) Balcarce, Argentina. E-mail: eodriozola@balcarce.inta.gov.ar A actinobacilose é causa comum de infecções esporádicas em bovinos. Esta afeção tem sido caracterizada como uma infecção piogranulomatosa não somente da língua como também de tecidos moles tais como linfonodos, ou outras localizações no trato digestivo e na pele. O objetivo do presente trabalho é descrever um episódio de dermatite piogranulomatosa e linfadenite que afetou um rebanho de touros na Argentina em 2010. As amostras recolhidas de um dos animais afetados permitiram o isolamento de Actinobacillus lignieresii. Observaram-se as lesões características da doença. Habitualmente não são comuns outras lesões para além das descritas como “língua de pau”, no entanto, a actinobacilose deve ser incluída como um possível diagnóstico diferencial de doenças cutâneas.
