Cutaneous lesions like ecthyma
gangrenosum are seen in 70% of the cases (2), (3).
gangrenosum: presentation in a normal neonate.
These findings are characteristic of ecthyma
gangrenosum combined with multiple perforations of the small intestine associated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
There may be rapid, purplish, haemorrhagic wound discolouration, deepening of the wound, friable or bleeding granulation tissue, eschar separation and tissue necrosis, ecthyma
gangrenosa and spreading peri-wound cellulitis.
Bedbug bites are also responsible for numerous secondary infections such as impetigo, ecthyma
, and lymphangitis (Burnett, 1986).
When examining skin lesions on llamas, viral diseases to consider as differential diagnoses include vesicular stomatitis, rabies, poxvirus (contagious ecthyma
and cowpox virus [CPXV]) (2), foot-and-mouth disease, bluetongue, and mucocutaneous fibropapillomas (3).
Blackleg (1970, 1995) and the contagious ecthyma
(1999) were probably introduced into the country by live ruminants imported from Madagascar (9).
This additional observation seems to prove that viruses isolated from chamois and ibex represent an adaptation of the same virus infecting domestic species rather than a separate viral species, despite the fact that the cause of contagious ecthyma
in chamois is still considered a tentative species among the PPV genus by official taxonomy (9).
was diagnosed by using PCR and electron microscopy for several sheep that showed blue-tonguelike signs but did not have antibodies to BTV or viral RNA.
The lesion was consistent with ecthyma
Klebsiella pneumoniae urinary tract infection complicated by endophthalmitis, perinephric abscess, and ecthyma
