Resumo

ISHAG, Osama M.; SAEED, Intisar K.  e  ALI, Yahia H.. Peste des petits ruminants outbreaks in White Nile State, Sudan. Onderstepoort j. vet. res. [online]. 2015, vol.82, n.1, pp. 01-04. ISSN 2219-0635.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/OJVR.V82I1.897.

Eight outbreaks of peste des petits ruminants in sheep and goats were reported in White Nile State, Sudan, between 2008 and 2009. A mortality rate of 4.2% was reported across the different outbreaks. Clinically the disease was characterised by high fever, ocular and nasal discharge, pneumonia, ulceration of the mucous membranes, diarrhoea and death. The postmortem findings included necrotic lesions in the mouth and gastrointestinal tract, and swollen, oedematous lymph nodes associated with the lungs and intestine. Of the 209 serum samples tested by competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, 113 (54%) were found positive. Peste des petits ruminants virus was confirmed in tissues, nasal swabs and blood samples by immunocapture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction and isolation of the virus in culture of lamb testicle cells.
