Echinocytosis in horses: 54 cases (1990)



Echinocytosis in horses: 54 cases (1990)



Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 202(6): 976-980



Retrospective review of complete blood count and serum chemical data from 124 horse admitted to the veterinary teaching hospital over a 9-month period (Feb 1, 1990 to Oct 31, 1990) indicated that 54 horses had echinocytosis (prevalence 44%). The most frequent diagnosis was colitis (23 horses; 43%). Odds ratios (measure of association) were calculated to determine the association of echinocytosis with specific haematological and biochemical abnormalities.
