Paralytic rabies in swine

Abstract: Rabies transmitted by vampire bats was diagnosed in pigs with paralysis of the pelvic limbs. Diffuse non-suppurative encephalomyelitis, affecting mainly the spinal cord, was observed histologically. Despite the various diagnosis of rabies in pigs this is the first report of clinical signs and pathology of rabies transmitted by vampire bats.

“…Botulism causes flaccid paralysis and there are no gross or histologic lesions (Raymundo et al 2012). In rabies there is a non-suppurative encephalomyelitis associated with intracytoplasmatic inclusion bodies (Pessoa et al 2011). Medullar abscesses generally affect one or few pig and there is a suppurative myelitis (De Lahunta & Glass 2009).…”

“…Em suínos as lesões são microscópicas e limitadas ao sistema nervoso central. São descritas meningoencefalite mononuclear perivascular, múltiplos focos de gliose (Notici et al 2009;Pessoa et al 2011), além de áreas de malácia com infiltrado de macrófagos (Notici et al 2009) e neuroniofagia (Pessoa et al 2011). A imunofluorescência direta é o teste padrão ouro para o diagnóstico de raiva em animais e humanos por ser um método rápido e sensível (WHO, 2004) Todavia a imuno-histoquímica pode ser utilizada para demonstração do antígeno rábico em tecidos que foram submetidos a fixação em formalina (Stein et al, 2010).…”

“…The introduction of domestic animals has contributed to the increase in populations of vampire bats (Altringham 1996), which have shown a preference for blood consumption of those instead of wildlife in rural communities, especially pigs (Bobrowiec et al 2015). Swine are susceptible to rabies virus, as reported in some regions of Brazil (Silva et al 2008;Nociti et al 2009), and transmission of the virus from D. rotundus has also been reported (Pessoa et al 2011). Rabies is considered one of the most feared diseases in the world due to its high mortality rate and lack of effective treatment (Langoni & Fornazari 2014).…”

“…Besides all those impacts, the epidemiological consequences of its presence are also highly relevant. Sus scrofa could act as reservoir for several diseases, such as rabies, leptospirosis, brucellosis and pseudorabies virus (Mason et al 1998;Romero et al 2001;Gresham et al 2002;Silva et al 2008;Pessoa et al 2011). Furthermore, biological features like social and aggressive behaviours, movement and dispersal ability, and high-density occurrence may contribute to disease transmission.…”
