Serologically atypical canine ehrlichiosis associated with Ehrlichia risticii infection



Serologically atypical canine ehrlichiosis associated with Ehrlichia risticii infection



Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 199(9): 1120



In screening of 2000 canine serum samples with the standard indirect immunofluorescence test, 100 were seropositive for antibodies to E. risticii and reacted poorly or negatively for antibodies to E. canis. In one case high antibody titres persisted for >2 years. In another case of recurrent clinical disease, an organism was isolated which was morphologically and serologically indistinguishable from E. risticii. This is thought to be the first clinical association of E. risticii with a form of canine ehrlichiosis that clinically mimics the disease caused by E. canis but is serologically consistent with E. risticii infection.
