Verminous arteritis in horses

Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 158(8): 1358-1360

Verminous arteritis in horses

Clinical signs are variable, but many include weight loss, rough coat, weakness (particularly of hind limbs), anaemia, abdominal pain and increased rectal temp. The lesions in the aorta and/or cranial mesenteric artery are caused by fourth-stage larvae of Strongylus vulgaris migrating into the tunica intima. The stroma becomes weakened, and sacculation takes place; fibrous proliferation in the tunica media reduces elasticity.
