Pneumocystis carinii in large domestic animals in Denmark. A preliminary report






Acta Veterinaria Scandinavica 30(4): 437-440

Pneumocystis carinii in large domestic animals in Denmark. A preliminary report

Lung imprints were made from carcasses selected at random from those submitted to the National Veterinary Laboratory for routine examination. Microscopic examination of the imprints after toluidine blue O staining showed P. carinii pneumocysts in 6 of 160 calves (3.8%), 1 of 28 sheep (3.6%) and 8 of 119 pigs (6.7%). In most of the animals only low grade infection was present, but a massive infection, with 50-200 pneumocysts in each microscope field viewed, was found in 4 pigs, aged 2-7 weeks.
