Spinose Ear Tick in India



Spinose Ear Tick in India



J. R. Army vet. Cps. Aldershot 7: 142-143



The author describes a case of cerebral derangement in an Australian horse in India. Post-mortem examination revealed the presence of 10 mature ticks in the internal acoustic meatus of both ears. Their presence had resulted in perforation of the tympanum and necrosis of the auricular nerves adjacent to the semicircular canals of the left petrous temporal bone. The ticks were identified as Ornithodorus megnini, Dug.
