Abstract: The identification of pathogens of viral (Rotavirus, Coronavirus), parasitic (Toxocara spp.) and bacterial (Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Rhodococcus equi) origin shed in feces, and the virulence profile of R. equi and E. coli isolates were investigated in 200 samples of sand obtained from 40 parks, located in central region of state of Sao Paulo, Brazil, using different diagnostic methods. From 200 samples analyzed, 23 (11.5%) strains of R. equi were isolated. None of the R. equi isolates showed a virule… Show more

“…), have been recommended for the selective isolation of R. equi from contaminated samples, particularly faeces, soil and sand (Fernandes et al . ). In Zambia National Parks, R. equi was recovered from 553 samples obtained from the faeces of indigenous species and soil samples using selective medium, although vapA and vapB genes were not found in the isolates (Takai et al .…”

“…It is also the etiologic agent of equine rhodococcosis, a disease that typically affects 3-week to 6-month-old foals (Giguère & Prescott 1997). This bacterium has a worldwide distribution and is frequently widespread in the environment, such as horse-breeding farms (Takai 1997) and public areas, including sand areas in parks (Takai et al 1996, Fernandes et al 2013. Furthermore, R. equi was described as a causative agent of opportunistic infections, especially in immunocompromised humans (Arlotti et al 1996).…”
