“…In the past various studies have been carried out regarding the molecular prevalence of E. canis worldwide and the prevalence rate has been reported to range from 3.1% to 88.0% (Murphy et al 1998;Dagnone et al 2003;Bulla et al 2004;Macieira et al 2005;Diniz et al 2007;Carvalho et al 2008;Alexandre et al 2009;Dagnone et al 2009;Faria et al 2010;Silva et al 2012). As regards the Indian scenario, a small number of published reports are available: the prevalence of E. canis was reported to be 50% (49/98) in Chennai (Lakshmanan et al 2007) and 20.6% from four different regions of India (Abd Rani et al 2011).…”

“…morulae in monocytes, macrophages and lymphocytes ( Figure 6) in Romanowsky-type stained smears from buffy coat and less frequently lymph node, BM, spleen, liver and cerebrospinal fl uid smears, is helpful in establishing a defi nitive diagnosis of acute CΜE [2,54,[58][59][60][61][62]. In a study with dogs naturallyinfected by E. canis (presumptive acute CME), the diagnostic sensitivity of buffy coat (review of 1000 oil immersion fi elds, 100x objective lens), lymph node (500 oil immersion fi elds, 100x objective lens) or their combination was 66%, 61% and 74%, respectively [59].…”

In another study, diagnostic sensitivity of spleen cytology in dogs naturally infected by E. canis was 49% [60]. Cytology may also support the diagnosis of CME even before seroconversion in acutely infected dogs and is valuable in documenting coinfections (e.g.…”

“…Canine ehrlichiosis is a disease with high incidence among domestic dogs in Brazil (DAGNONE et al, 2003;NAKAGHI et al, 2008;FARIA et al, 2010;VIEIRA et al, 2011), with extensive mortality. It is a tick-borne disease caused by Gram-negative bacteria, of the species Ehrlichia canis, mostly transmitted by Rhipicephalus sanguineus (LEWIS et al, 1977;TROY;FORRESTER, 1990).…”
