Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pathological and bacteriological examinations were carried out on a neonatal calf that had developed nervous symptoms such as opisthotonus and blindness since it was born one month prior to full term. The principal lesions were characterized by fibrinopurulent inflammation of the meninges, choroid plexuses, and ventricular walls with limited extension to the subependymal parenchyma in the spinal cord. Purulent inflammation was also found in several visceral organs and tissues. Streptococcus pluranimalium was isolated from the brain and cerebrospinal fluid. These results suggest that the animal suffered from meningoventriculitis with septicemic S. pluranimalium infection.
