Echinococcus multilocularis causes a rare but potentially lethal zoonotic infection in humans. This tapeworm is known to be endemic in foxes in several countries of Western and Central Europe. In Western Europe, the common vole (Microtus arvalis) and the water vole (Arvicola terrestris) are considered to be the most important intermediate host species of this cestode whereas the red fox is by far the most important final host. The purpose of this study was to provide data on the prevalences in Wallonia (Southern part of Belgium) both in the red fox and in different potential intermediate hosts. A total of 990 red foxes were examined between January 2003 and December 2004 for the presence of E. multilocularis. The average prevalence was 24.55% (22.38-27.87). Out of 1249 rodents or insectivores belonging to the species Apodemus sylvaticus, Arvicola terrestris, Clethrionomys glareolus, Microtus arvalis, Microtus agrestris and Sorex araneus, only one M. arvalis (out of 914-0.11% (0.003-0.61) and one C. glareolus (out of 23-4.3% (0.1-21.9) were found to be infected. However, the muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus) seems to be a good intermediate host as 11.18% (9.72-12.76) of the animals (n=1718) were found to be infected. A positive correlation was found between the prevalences in foxes and in muskrats in each of the different geological regions. This study indicates that the muskrat is highly sensitive to this zoonotic tapeworm and could perhaps represent a good bioindicator when studying the epidemiology of this parasitic infection in Belgium and in other countries where the muskrat is present.

A new species of pearlfish, Echiodon prionodon, is described from three specimens. This species is diagnosed by having a serrated margin on the posterior edge of the fangs, expanded thoracic plates on some abdominal vertebrae and ventral swimbladder tunic ridges. This species was only found in coastal waters around the North Island of New Zealand. The diagnosis of Eurypleuron is revised. [less ▲]

We report the M-mode and two-dimensional echocardiographic findings in a patient with familial amyloidosis. The diagnosis was made by the clinical picture and histologic evidence of amyloid in peripheral nerve biopsy. Though the patient had no clinical sign of heart failure, extensive involvement of the heart was demonstrated by echocardiography. M-mode echocardiography revealed increased right ventricular wall thickness in conjunction with symmetric increase in left ventricular wall thickness. On two-dimensional echocardiography, the entire interventricular septum and the papillary muscles were more dense than normal. These high density echoes had a "granular and sparkling" pattern. This case shows that cardiac amyloidosis can be diagnosed in the pre-clinical, asymptomatic state by M-mode and two-dimensional echocardiography. When symptomatic, confusion with constrictive pericarditis may be avoided non-invasively. [less ▲]

Background: Echocardiography has not been reported to study hemodynamic disturbances in colic horses. Objectives: To non invasively assess the impact of colic-related endotoxin shock on equine cardiac function. Animals: Fifty horses admitted in clinic on emergency for colic. Methods: A shock score from 1 to 4 was established for each horse based on clinical evaluation, non invasive systolic blood pressure and blood tests measurements. Left ventricular echocardiographic and Doppler parameters were compared between the 4 groups according to the shock score (1 = no or discrete signs of shock, n=11; 2 = mild shock, n=17; 3 = moderate shock, n=12; 4 = severe shock, n=10) using a multivariable analysis. Horses with a score shock of 1 were considered as control. Significance was set at P < 0.05. Results: The stroke volume, stroke index, ejection time, ejection time index corrected for heart rate, aortic velocity time integral, aortic flow acceleration time and aortic flow deceleration time were significantly lower whereas acceleration rate of aortic flow ejection and heart rate were significantly higher in shocked horses than in controls. Cardiac output was not significantly different between groups. Conclusions and Clinical importance: Even if those results are difficult to interpret because of the shock-induced changes in loading conditions of the heart, they suggest that alterations in some indicators of systolic function can be quantified by Doppler echocardiography in horses with colic-induced endotoxemic shock. Ultrasonographic monitoring of cardiovascular function could thus be of interest in equine intensive care. [less ▲]
