Isolation of Vibrio alginolyticus from the wounds and blood of a burn patient is reported. Numerous tissue biopsy sites as well as one blood culture yielded the organism. The case history and a review of the hospital course of the patient is provided where relevant to the presence and identification of the organism. The bacteriologic, biochemical, and(More)
The quantitative swab culture is a reliable method for quantifying the number of viable bacteria colonizing open wounds. For open wounds in burn patients, the swab bacterial count is linearly related to biopsy quantification of viable bacteria in the underlying tissue. This technique is simple and requires no surgical manipulation of the wound. For a wound(More)
BACKGROUND During the past decade, Chorioptes mites occupying the outer ear canals have been a common finding at routine necropsies of moose (Alces alces) in Sweden, but neither the taxonomy of the mites nor lesions from the infestation have been investigated. In this study, the mites are characterized by morphological and molecular techniques, and the(More)
Contagious caprine pleuropneumonia (CCPP) is a major threat to goat farming in parts of Africa and Asia. It classically causes acute high morbidity and mortality early in infection, but little is known of its long term epizootiology and course. In this study, 10 goats were inoculated with Mycoplasma capricolum subsp. capripneumoniae (M. capripneumoniae) and(More)
A Borna disease virus (BDV)-like agent was isolated from the central nervous system (CNS) of cats with a spontaneous non-suppurative encephalomyelitis ('staggering disease'). In contrast to the rabbit-adapted BDV strain V, which can be propagated in several primary and permanent cell cultures, the cat virus grew only in embryonic mink brain cells. Infection(More)
