Verminous arteritis - a case report

Verminous arteritis - a case report

Southwestern Veterinarian 31(3): 209-212

In Texas, USA, a horse with a 2-week history of intermittent colic was found, upon rectal examination, to have a mass about 15 cm in diameter in the midline of the ventral third of the abdomen. Abdominocentesis yielded fluid with total protein 2.8 g/dl and white blood cells 20,400/mm3 with 10 to 15% eosinophils. Verminous arteritis (due to migrating Strongylus vulgaris larvae) with mesenteric infection was diagnosed.
