Osteomyelitis and septicemia secondary to Listeria monocytogenes in a young dog

  title={Osteomyelitis and septicemia secondary to Listeria monocytogenes in a young dog},
  author={Jason Doolittle and Laura Rasmussen},
  journal={Journal of Dairy, Veterinary \& Animal Research},
A previously healthy, two-year-old, male (intact) Labrador retriever weighing 25kg (55lb) presented with a three-month history of an acute onset of right rear limb and right forelimb lameness. Radiographs obtained during the first examination with his primary care veterinarian revealed a proliferative lesion in the proximal femur at the level of the greater trochanter. A biopsy was obtained at that time. Histopathologic evaluation of this lesion was inconclusive, noting neutrophilic… 

An uncommon case: feline tail post-traumatic osteomyelitis

A case of old stray cat which developed post-traumatic tail OM, and endured it for years, is presented, an immuno-compromised, neglected, animal strongly infested with larvae of Aelurostrongylus abs trusus and oocistae of Isospora felis.

Contamination factors associated with surviving bacteria in Thai commercial raw pet foods

The freezing and drying processes may reduce, but not eradicate, the bacterial contamination in raw pet food, which emphasize the need for quality control in the manufacturing process and show the importance of personal hygiene for the pet owner to reduce health risks.



Epidural abscess and vertebral osteomyelitis caused by Listeria monocytogenes: case report and literature review.

A 69-y-old male with an epidural abscess and concomitant vertebral osteomyelitis caused by Listeria monocytogenes is presented, together with a brief review of the literature. To our knowledge, no

Listeria monocytogenes osteomyelitis.

Certain characteristics of L monocytogenes may make cure difficult, particularly in a deep-seated focus such as bone, and may warrant special consideration when planning therapy.

Canine tonsillitis associated with Listeria monocytogenes

This short communication describes two cases of tonsillitis in dogs, from which Listeria monocytogenes was isolated.

Listeriosis in a raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides) associated with canine distemper.

Since early August 1998, 40 illnesses caused by a single strain of Listeria monocytogenes (LM) have been identified in 10 states and all LM isolates from these cases are serotype 4b and share an unusual pattern when subtyped either by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis or by ribotyping methods.

Neutrophils are involved in acute, nonspecific resistance to Listeria monocytogenes in mice.

An important role for neutrophils in controlling the acute phase of Listeria infection is demonstrated, cooperating with, and yet independent of, macrophages and NK cells.
