Pycnodysostosis is a rare sclerosing bone dystrophy. The main clinical features are short stature and oral and maxillofacial abnormalities such as a large head, a small and underdeveloped face with prominent nose and eyes, irregular dentition, small hands and feet with dystrophic nails, and trunk deformities such as scoliosis. The differential diagnosis is established with other skeletal dysplasias such as osteopetrosis, cleidocranial dysplasia, and idiopathic acroosteolysis. Since its first description in 1962 by Maroteaux and Lamy, about 100 cases have been published, some of these with uncommon features. We describe the case of a 22-year-old European man with pycnodysostosis who developed a chondroblastic osteosarcoma of the right femur. No case of bone cancer in this sclerosing bone disease had been described so far. [less ▲]

Trichuris suis, also called whipworm, is a parasite of the caecum and colon distributed widely and considered as a fairly common parasite in swine. It may be responsible for porcine trichurosis characterized by diarrhoea, anorexia, growth retardation, dehydration, emaciation and anaemia. This report presents a case of trichurosis diagnosed in a farrow-to-finish Belgian pig herd. The infection was associated with severe and persistent diarrhoea, growth retardation, emaciation and/or anaemia in 10 recently purchased gilts and in fattening pigs. In gilts, levamisole [8 mg/kg body weight] administered once per os gave a good clinical response, as diarrhoea resolved in nine gilts out of 10. In parallel, for these nine gilts, the number of eggs of T. suis/g faeces passed decreased from 12 400 to less than 100 eggs. In fattening pigs, flubendazole (1 mg/kg BW) administrated over 5 days in drinking water allowed a reduction in the number of T. suis eggs/g and was effective against diarrhoea. Although most of the time pig whipworm infections are light and asymptomatic, in some cases when large numbers of worms are present, they can cause watery to bloody diarrhoea that can lead to anaemia. This less frequent disease should not be forgotten in the differential diagnosis of persistent diarrhoea in growing pigs. [less ▲]

True hermaphroditism in horses, is a complex and poorly under- stood disorder of sexual development characterized by the presence of both male and female gonads as separate organs or in a combined structure called ovotestis. A 3-year-old Spanish nullipa- rous mare with a history of stallion behaviour and an abnormal reproductive exam was presented at the Equine Clinic of the University of Li ege. Externally, a small vulva with an enlarged clitoris was observed. Transrectal ultrasonography showed a thin (<1 cm) uterus, leading to a small heterogeneous structure in the normal place of the left ovary. No structure could be identified in the presumed location of the right ovary. Speculum exam was compatible with a vaginal agenesis, as the cervix opened craniad the urethral meatus. Oestradiol, progesterone and testosterone concen- trations were compatible with a stallion’s endocrinology. Gonads were laparoscopically found in the usual location of the ovaries in both flanks and excised. Histopathology of both gonads showed atrophic testicular tissue with hyperplastic Leydig cells. The left gonad also contained ovarian tissue with some scarce primordial follicles. Clitoral enlargement is the first symptom most commonly identified in animals with true hermaphroditism and can be explained by the production of testosterone by the gonads, however, the aetiology of the vaginal agenesis is unknown. True hermaph- roditism in horses is generally related to 64XX syndrome with or without SRY gene translocation (impending karyotyping analysis). After 5 days the mare was discharged from the clinic, and in absence of testosterone the stallion behaviour disappeared in a couple of months. [less ▲]

After ingestion of moulded beet pulp silage, cases of cortico-cerebral necrosis (CCN) and mortalities have been observed in a Belgian Blue (BB) herd. Contamination with Paecilomyces spp., a mould that produces byssochlamic acid, malformins and patulin, has been proven. Among these toxins, patulin is known to have cancerogenic, immunosuppressive and tremorgenic effects, but also acts on the respiratory and digestive systems. Twenty-five days after progressive introduction of beet pulp silage into the ration of a dual purpose BB herd, most of the animals showed diminished appetite, salivation and decreased milk production. All 35 cows were reluctant to consume the beet pulp silage, but continued to eat grass silage voluntarily. Seven of them showed anorexia and nervous symptoms, like head pressing and blindness. Four animals died within 1 week after onset of neurological symptoms. No necropsy has been performed, since legislation does not allow post-mortem examination of the central nervous system in the field. The three survivors had been treated successfully with thiamine (10 mg/kg, IV, TID) and recovered completely within five days. After the beet pulp silage had been identified as causative agent, it had been removed from the animals’ ration and no more clinical case has been observed. Four weeks later, the same beet pulp silage has been reintroduced into the animals’ ration and provoked again diminished appetite, salivation and a decrease in milk production in most of the animals. Clinical signs were also suggesting lead poisoning but any contact with lead containing material could have been excluded. Silage was obviously moulded and analysis revealed the presence of 1.6 million CFU Paecilomyces spp./g of silage. Although no further investigation has been made to identify the mycotoxins, an intoxication with patulin has been suspected, since other mycotoxins produced by these species are less toxic. Although it has not been described that CCN can be induced by ingestion of Paecilomyces spp., it seems that there is a close relation between ingestion of Paecilomyces-contaminated silage and observed clinical signs in this herd.

Introduction: Non-traumatic neuromuscular lesions of only one muscular portion of the quadriceps are rare and poorly described in literature. Aim: The goal of our study was to investigate the possible causes of this pathology and to objectively quantify the functional consequences of this isolated atrophy from the rectus femoris on the total muscular performances of the quadriceps. Patient and Method: A male patient, 44 years old, presented an isolated atrophy of the right rectus femoris without pain nor history of previous traumatic event. He reported occasional paraesthesias on anterior right thigh. Electromyographic exploration of the lower limbs, imagery (echography and MRI) and isokinetic test were undertaken by the patient. Results: Imagery explorations showed the atrophy of the right rectus femoris combined with fatty degeneration but this exam did not allow determining the actual etiology. Therefore, a precise diagnosis was not allowed, even if the EMG confirmed the presence of important signs of specific and isolated denervation only in the right rectus femoris. The isokinetic test, performed in the classical sitting position, highlighted symmetrical performances for flexors of the knee and a moderately decrease in the right concentric quadriceps torque (-10%). A complementary isokinetic assessment, in a lying supine position, demonstrated a more marked deficit of this right quadriceps (higher than -30%). Conclusion: No precise etiology was shown for this isolated atrophy of the right rectus femoris. Nevertheless, we brought back the importance to lay the patient in a lying supine position in order to preferentially investigate the rectus femoris performances through an isokinetic test. [less ▲]
