Primary Aspergillus and Fusarium keratitis in a Cow
Keratitis in cows is not really exciting, but this case is very special because of the causative agents.

A 5-year-old female Holstein cow was examined for ocular discharge, periorbital swelling, an area of full-thickness corneal cellular infiltrate, fibrin, hypopyon, diffuse corneal edema, and miosis.

The patient was diagnosed with a corneal stromal abscess and secondary anterior uveitis.

Histopathology, mycotic culture, and polymerase chain reaction positive for Aspergillus and Fusarium DNA confirmed the presence of fungal infection.

Response to therapy was adequate, and follow-up with the patient 1 year after diagnosis revealed a focal area of corneal fibrosis.

Lifetime prognosis in cattle with necrotic laryngitismembers

A total of 221 cattle diagnosed with necrotic laryngitis by laryngoscopy and surgically treated were enrolled in this retrospective cohort study. The objective of this study: To determine survival until slaughter of cattle surgically treated for necrotic laryngitis and to identify predictors of mortality.
