Molecular Characterization of Sarcocystis Species Isolated from Sheep and Goats in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

The tongue, esophagus, heart, diaphragm, and skeletal muscles were collected from 230 sheep and 84 goats, and the tissues were examined for the presence of Sarcocystis species by macroscopic examination and light microscopy, indicating that they were strongly related.

Seasonal variation in Sarcocystis species infections in goats in northern Iraq

The prevalence of sarcocystosis in 826 goats slaughtered in the winter season from November to April in northern Iraq was on average 34%, with only 20% infected animals in November, but 46% in February, and 2 forms of macroscopic sarcocysts, fat and thin, with different morphological characteristics were identified.

The fine structure of cysts ofSarcocystis moulei from goats

The present study deals with the ovoid, macroscopically visible cysts of S. moulei, obtained from natural infections in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Afghanistan and from goats that were experimentally infected by cat-excreted sporocysts.

Production of Sarcocystis gigantea sporocysts by experimentally infected cats.

A study of 28 infections in 22 individually housed cats fed excised cysts of Sarcocystis gigantea from naturally infected sheep revealed a consistent pattern of sporocyst shedding, which tended to increase with increasing infective dose and to be greater in those cats receiving multiple rather than equivalent single doses.
