As mortes geralmente estão relacionadas com as lesões nos pré-estômagos, provocadas pela ação tóxica dos tricotecenos macrocíclicos, associadas a desidratação e diarreia, no qual há desequilíbrio de eletrólitos [10,15].…”

Esses achados corroboram com os descritos na literatura para a intoxicação por plantas do gênero Baccharis em animais [2,5,6,8,11]. O tecido de granulação observado Figura 3.…”
