1/3. Abortion in woman caused by caprine chlamydophila abortus (chlamydia psittaci serovar 1).

    On a farm housing cattle and goats an abortion storm occurred affecting 50% of the goats during the lambing season 2000/2001. In one of three investigated caprine abortions chlamydophila abortus could be identified as aetiology. During this time a pregnant woman (pregnancy week 19/20) had contact with aborting goats. She developed a severe generalized infection and aborted. The placenta contained chlamydophila abortus shown by immunohistochemistry and PCR. The aim of the present case report is to alert medical doctors about the potential zoonotic risk of ovine/caprine abortions. ( info)

2/3. Isolation of campylobacter jejuni from an aborted caprine fetus.

    campylobacter jejuni was isolated in pure culture from the tissues and stomach contents of an aborted fetus from a mixed-breed illinois goat herd. In the herd, 5 of 21 does aborted in late gestation. The does had diarrhea before or concurrent with the abortions. Does that did not abort were vaccinated with ovine C fetus bacterin and were given chlortetracycline orally at the rate of 75 mg/day for 2 weeks. Further abortions did not occur. ( info)

3/3. Contribution to some phenotypical characteristics of vibrio cincinnatiensis. Studies in one strain of a diarrhoeic human patient and in two isolates from aborted bovine fetuses.

    Until now, only a few strains of V. cincinnatiensis have been isolated. This study describes a further three isolates which originated in one case from a stool specimen of an immunocompromised elder patient suffering from enteritis and in two cases from the rennin stomachs of aborted bovine fetuses. These strains grew on TCBS, CIN, MacConkey and XLD plates. Their biochemical activities were dependent on NaCl concentration, in particular the formation of indole, lysine and ornithine decarboxylases, arginine dihydrolase, the reduction of nitrate and behaviour in the Voges-Proskauer test. Moreover, lysine decarboxylase and nitrate reductase were temperature-dependent. The knowledge of these hitherto unknown phenotypical characteristics may facilitate the diagnosis of the pathogen.
