Abstract

Summary

Histological examination of the small intestines and mesenteric lymph-nodes of 100 cattle slaughtered at an abattoir between 1 Jan. and 31 Aug. 1971 revealed granulomata containing “asteroid bodies” in 18 animals. Fungal hyphae were demonstrated in the asteroid bodies in 11 of these 18 cattle. Fungi were isolated from 18 out of 66 animals in which mesenteric nodes were examined by a reliable cultural method. The findings suggest that the intestine may be an important portal of entry in systemic fungal infections of cattle.
