The first case of malignant catarrhal fever by OHV-2 in bovine in Northern Italy is presented in a 9-month-old Holstein heifer. The diagnosis was suspected on the basis of clinical signs and histopathological lesions of microangiopathy. It was confirmed by PCR performed on the blood of the subject, and immunohistochemical features showed a prevalence of CD3, suggesting that T-lymphocytes are the major cell type in this case.

Abstract

The first case of malignant catarrhal fever by OHV-2 in bovine in Northern Italy is presented in a 9-month-old Holstein heifer. The diagnosis was suspected on the basis of clinical signs and histopathological lesions of microangiopathy. It was confirmed by PCR performed on the blood of the subject, and immunohistochemical features showed a prevalence of CD3, suggesting that T-lymphocytes are the major cell type in this case.
