Observations on the morbid anatomy and histology of Manchester wasting disease of cattle in Jamaica, and related conditions in other countries of the Americas



Observations on the morbid anatomy and histology of Manchester wasting disease of cattle in Jamaica, and related conditions in other countries of the Americas



American Journal of Veterinary Research 17(65): 630-639



A brief review of the literature on this disease which is a chronic wasting condition associated with calcific changes in various organs, is followed by a detailed description of the pathological anatomy gross and microscopic, based on 19 detailed autopsies. On the basis of the morbid histology the condition is considered to be identical to "enteque seco" of S. America. Some biochemical data are quoted to support the authors' conclusions that the disease represents a form of metastatic calcification associated with an imbalanced mineral intake.
