Praktische Tierarzt 80(9): 789...795



Enzootic bovine leukosis was found to be a herd problem in a Holstein-Friesian population in Assiut, Egypt. With the agar gel immunodiffusion test, 45% of 100 adult cows and 15% of 50 fattening steers were seropositive; haematological examination showed 55% of adult cows and 15% of fattening steers to be positive. 20% of cows showed clinical signs of leukosis, including lymph node enlargement and unilateral xerophthalmia.
