Proliferative enteropathy due to Lawsonia intracellularis in a filly
Not unusual in pigs: profuse diarrhea caused by the obligate intracellular bacterium Lawsonia intracellularis. The `Proliferative enteropathy` (PE) is a disease of high economic impact in swine worldwide. In most other species the disease occurs as a sporadic infection. It has never been described in horses before. This case comes from Switzerland.

Lawsonia intracellularis Proliferative Enteropathy in a Filly
This paper reports a PE caused by L. intracellularis in a 9-month-old Pura Raza Española filly with a history of profuse diarrhoea.

The horse was treated with antibiotics and additionally symptomatic with i.v. infusions etc. but was finally euthanized.

Pathological lesions consisted of a severe proliferative enteritis associated with argyrophilic bacteria in the apical cytoplasm of proliferating crypt epithelium.

Characteristic PCR products confirmed the presumptive diagnosis of L. intracellularis infection.

Limbal squamous cell carcinoma in a Rocky Mountain Horse and geneticsmembers
One privately owned Rocky Mountain Horse and 84 Rocky Mountain Horses screened for allelic frequency were enrolled in this study. The objective: To document a case of limbal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in a Rocky Mountain Horse stallion determined to be homozygous for the genetic risk factor (DDB2 c.1013C>T) strongly associated with the disease in Haflinger and Belgian horses, and to determine the frequency of this allele in a larger population of Rocky Mountain Horses.
