Resumen

LAMPEN, F; BHOORA, R; COLLINS, N E  y  PENZHORN, B L. Putative clinical piroplasmosis in a Burchell’s zebra (Equus quagga burchelli). J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2009, vol.80, n.4, pp.257-260. ISSN 2224-9435.

A 10-year-old tame zebra gelding was presented after sufferingfrom lethargy, nervousness, reported anaemia and icterus as well as a decreased appetite. These symptoms were seen over some months, with changing severity. The animal was immobilised, treated, and blood specimens were submitted for haematology and biochemistry. This report describes molecular characterisation of Theileria equi recovered from this animal, as well as the clinical findings, treatment and historical relevance of piroplasmosis in zebra in southern Africa.

Palabras clave : Burchell's zebra; Equus quagga burchelli; piroplasmosis; Theileria equi; treatment.
