Etiology and pathology of equine placentitis

Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation 5(1): 56-63
Etiology and pathology of equine placentitis
Placentas from aborted, stillborn, and premature foals were examined during the 1988 and 1989 foaling seasons, and 236 of 954 (24.7%) had placentitis. Microorganisms associated with placentitis were isolated or demonstrated from 162 of 236 (68.6%) placentitis cases. Leptospira spp. and a nocardioform actinomycete were 2 important, newly emerging bacteria associated with equine placentitis.
