Besnoitia bennetti in two Mexican burros






Veterinary Pathology 10(2): 177-184

Besnoitia bennetti in two Mexican burros

The infection was detected in two Mexican burros from closed herd of 15 animals in Maryland. Cystic stages, about 1 mm in diameter, were found in the testis of a male and in the skin of the perineum and teat of a female. The superficial location of the cysts on the teat suggests the potential for traumatic rupture and oral transmission during nursing by a foal. The wall of the cysts was 10-15 mu m thick and consisted of four layers, the outer of which was birefringent.
