Abstract: Five cases of late-stage abortion in dama gazelle (Gazella dama) occurred in the United Arab Emirates. Histopathologic and molecular diagnostics found the abortions to be associated with Coxiella burnetii infection. Examination of the herd 6 mo later revealed a significant number of serologically positive animals but failed to detect the antigen in genital swabs. There are few reports in the literature of C. burnetii abortion in nondomestic ungulates and no published reports from the United Arab Emirates.
