a geographic cluster of malignant catarrhal fever in moose (alces alces) in norway.three cases of lethal sheep-associated malignant catarrhal fever (sa-mcf) in free-ranging moose (alces alces) were diagnosed in lesja, norway, december 2008-february 2010. the diagnosis was based on pcr identification of ovine herpesvirus 2 (ovhv-2) dna (nā€Š=ā€Š3) and typical histopathologic lesions (nā€Š=ā€Š1). to study the possibility of subclinical or latent mcf virus (mcfv) infection in this moose population and in red deer (cervus elaphus), we examined clinically normal animals sampled during hunt ...201525574807
malignant catarrhal fever in free-ranging cervids associated with ovhv-2 and cphv-2 dna.pathologic lesions were summarized in 18 free-ranging cervids (15 moose [alces alces], two roe deer [capreolus capreolus], and one red deer [cervus elaphus]) diagnosed with malignant catarrhal fever (mcf) after examination at the national veterinary institute, oslo 1982-2005. eye lesions (conjunctivitis, corneal opacity, fibrin clots in the anterior eye chamber) were the most frequent gross finding. erosive-ulcerative mucosal lesions in the nose and mouth were also commonly found. histopathology ...200617255446
serum antibody prevalence of malignant catarrhal fever viruses in seven wildlife species from alaska.blood samples were collected from seven species of free-ranging ungulates in alaska. sera were tested for evidence of exposure to malignant catarrhal fever viruses (mcfv) by means of a competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. antibody prevalences were as follows: muskox (ovibos moschatus) 100 positive samples of 104 tested (96%); dall sheep (ovis dalli) 212 of 222 (95%); elk (cervus elaphus) 14 of 51 (27%); bison (bison bison) 34 of 197 (17%); caribou (rangifer tarandus) nine of 232 (4%); ...200212238366
sheep-associated malignant catarrhal fever in free-ranging moose (alces alces) in saskatchewan, canada.malignant catarrhal fever (mcf) is a sporadic disease of artiodactyls caused by several viruses in the gammaherpesvirinae. we report two cases of mcf in free-living moose (alces alces) from saskatchewan. one was a thin, dehydrated, adult male found recumbent in 2006. at necropsy, ulcers were found in the intestine, bladder, and corneas. microscopically, there was lymphocytic vasculitis and perivasculitis in many organs with infrequent fibrinoid necrosis. ovine herpes virus-2 (ohv-2) was identifi ...200919204352
