Resumen

LAWRENCE, J A; FOGGIN, C M  y  PROZESKY, L. Gousiekte in African buffalo (Syncerus caffer). J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2010, vol.81, n.3, pp. 170-171. ISSN 2224-9435.

Three African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) that died after capture and translocation from Mutirikwe Recreational Park in southern Zimbabwe showed macroscopic and microscopic lesions of cardiomyopathy compatible with a diagnosis of gousiekte. The buffalo had had access to Pavetta schumanniana, a plant that is known to cause gousiekte. Death was attributed to cardiac failure as a result of previous consumption of the plant, exacerbated by the stress of translocation.

Palabras clave : African buffalo; cardiomyopathy; gousiekte; Mutirikwe Recreational Park; Zimbabwe; Pavetta schumanniana; Syncerus caffer.
