Additional information


The protozoan NEOSPORA CANINUM is a cause of abortion in cattle and congenital infection in calves. Aborted tissue typically has multifocal gliosis and malacia in central nervous tissue, myocardial necrosis, mononuclear myocarditis and multifocal placentitis. Bovine abortions appear to be most common after 90 days of gestation with a peak at 5-7 months. N. CANINUM has also been associated with abortion in sheep and goats but natural infection is uncommon.
