Spontaneous Aortic Lesions in Reindeer (Rangifer Tarandus L)

Spontana aortaskador hos ren (Rangifer tarandus L)

Abstract

Aortas of 20 reindeer, aged from 1.5 to 8.5 years, were studied. Fatty streaks were seen in 9, a fibrous plaque in 1, and elastic tissue degeneration in the tunica media in 4 of the aortas.

Sammanfattning

Aortor från 20 skogs rent jurar, 1.5–8.5 år gamla, har undersökts. Stråk av fett förelåg i 9, en fibrös knuta i 1 och degeneration av elastisk vävnad i tunica media i 4 aortor.

Förändringar förelåg hos såväl unga som äldre djur och överensstämde makroskopiskt och mikroskopiskt med vad som beskrivits från andra djurslag och människa. Betydelsen av de hos skogsrenar förekommande kraftiga infestationerna med Onchocerca tarsicola diskuteras.
