Concurrent cryptosporidium and coronavirus infections in an Arabian foal with combined immunodeficiency syndrome



Concurrent cryptosporidium and coronavirus infections in an Arabian foal with combined immunodeficiency syndrome



Veterinary Record 126(6): 127-130



This report describes the clinical and pathological features of a combined immunodeficiency syndrome in a 4-week-old pure Arabian calf foal born in the UK which showed signs of alimentary and respiratory infections. The diagnostic criteria of the disease, which are an absence of serum IgM, an absolute lymphopenia and post-mortem evidence of diffuse hypoplasia of lymphoid tissues, were satisfied in this foal.
