zoonoses and other findings in hedgehogs (erinaceus europaeus): a survey of mortality and review of the literature.a survey of mortality in hedgehogs (erinaceus europaeus) was carried out between july 1976 and november 1986. most were from norfolk. of the 74 examined, 35 (47.3 per cent) were road casualties, one of which yielded salmonella typhimurium phage type (pt) 104. of the remaining 39, 13 (33.3 per cent) had salmonellosis due to s enteritidis pt 11. this organism, which appears to be common and widespread in hedgehogs in england was found in 10 separate incidents. the only other zoonosis was ringworm ...19912035215
serological investigations of the hedgehog (erinaceus europaeus) in styria. 2. report.from 1975 to 1982 investigations of 64 hedgehogs for anthropozoonoses and infectious diseases were carried out in all regions of styria, austria. the serological investigations revealed positive results against rickettsiosis, (q-fever and rmsf-groups antigen), (ornithosis, toxoplasmosis, listeriosis, against adenoviruses and herpesvirus). other studies by nosek et al. (1967); troger et al. (1976); kaaserer et al. (1976) and stunzner et al. (1976) report on the hedgehog (erinaceus europaeus) as i ...19892744467
isolation of tbe virus from the tick ixodes hexagonus.tick-borne encephalitis (tbe) virus was isolated from a sample of ixodes hexagonus ticks collected from the hair of the western european hedgehog (erinaceus europaeus) which had been captured on the edge of a new housing estate in ceské budÄ•jovice at the end of september 1986. this was the first isolation of tbe virus from this vector, supporting the previous experimental results. the virus was identified in immunofluorescent and plaquereduction neutralization tests.19883058559
the fecal odor of sick hedgehogs (erinaceus europaeus) mediates olfactory attraction of the tick ixodes hexagonus.parasite loads of animals vary among individuals, but the underlying mechanisms have not been fully identified. here, we investigated whether health status of hedgehogs (erinaceus europaeus) is correlated with tick burden, and whether chemical cues linked to the health status of the host mediate attraction of the tick ixodes hexagonus. an ecological survey conducted over 10 years, involving 226 wild hedgehogs, revealed a strong association between health status and tick burden of hedgehogs, with ...201121445567
