Relationship between clinical signs and early lesions of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia caused by Mycoplasma strain F38


Small Ruminant Research 10(1): 45-54
Relationship between clinical signs and early lesions of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia caused by Mycoplasma strain F38
Diagnosis of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia (CCPP) caused by Mycoplasma strain F38 employs post-mortem examination and isolation. Sacrificed goats are preferred for diagnosis in hot tropical countries. Lesions observed in sacrificed animals are often not fully developed to the extent of causing death. Early lesions were studied in sequentially sacrificed goats and a comparison made between the lesions and clinical signs. Goats sacrificed on days 0, 3 and 8 after contact between healthy and diseased goats were free from lesions and clinical signs. Goats sacrificed on days 11, 15 and 22 after contact showed small superficial lung lesions characterized by hyperaemia and edema, and mild clinical signs characterized by an occasional cough. Fever first occurred 27 days after contact. Goats sacrificed after fever showed lung consolidation characterized by firmness. The data of consolidation increased in diameter from day 1 up to day 5 of fever. Complement fixation test (CFT) titres were low up to the time of death. The relationship between clinical signs and early lesions can be used as a guide in diagnostic work.
