Ten outbreaks of anthrax occurred in cattle from to in southern Brazil, in 5 municipalities on the border with Uruguay, a country where the disease is frequent. Received on May 30, Because Bacillus anthracis -like bacteria were observed in the polychromatic methylene blue stain of blood smears Fig. This fact and also the occurrence of the acute form of the disease, with clinical signs not suggestive of anthrax, in the absence of necropsies, increase the difficulty of diagnosis.

In Brazil, anthrax was reported for the first time in the forties, but there were anecdotal reports of the disease before that Langenegger Anthrax in cattle in southern Brazil: Anthrax is endemic all over the world, but the possibility of the bacteria to grow and multiply as saprophytes in the environment has not been established definitively. Necropsies were only performed in cases of the acute form of the disease in which there was not a suspicion of anthrax, and in cases in which a previous diagnosis of tick fever was made.

All outbreaks occurred in cattle in the southeastern and obvinos region of the state, in municipalities on anhrax border with Uruguay Fig. Probably in this outbreak the animals were incubating the disease at the time of vaccination.

In Outbreak 10 cattle were born on the farm and the only transportation of cattle was between this farm and a neighboring farm belonging to the same farmer. On the other hand an increase in the number of outbreaks was reported also from Argentina and Uruguay in the last 3 years, between and Rojas et al. In Outbreak 10 the occurrence of the disease was probably associated with the concentration of animals grazing on an almost dry pond area, which was the only part of the paddock with green pasture.


Farmers informed that two cattle in Outbreak 4 and one in Outbreak 8 survived after treatment with antibiotics. In Outbreak 4 cattle were vaccinated against tick fever days before; anthrax bbovinos diagnosed in cattle with acute signs; they did not respond to tetracycline treatment.

In Argentina, between andfrom samples with suspicion of anthrax, 25 were positive.

In Outbreaks 7, 8 and 10 cattle were not vaccinated against anthrax. Later, anthrax was diagnosed in cattle found dead without the observation of clinical signs. Nevertheless, the endemic occurrence in the southern and southeastern region of Rio Grande do Sul suggests that cattle in these regions should be vaccinated annually.

It has been recognized that spores of B. Clinically the peracute form was more anrrax, but in some outbreaks the acute form with a clinical manifestation period of hours was also observed.

In outbreaks of anthrax it has been observed that mortality decreases markedly nearly 8 days after vaccination Forshaw et al.

Cattle found dead had dark tarry blood, which did not clot, from the natural orifices, and assumed the typical “sawhorse” posture. The number of anthrax outbreaks from to represents 0. More recently considerable importance has been given to B. All the bovinow of this journal, except where otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License. Diagnosis Blood smears showed large Gram-positive rods, isolated or in chains, similar to B.

Only one farmer reported that sheep and horses were also affected. Accepted for publication on July 15, Pathology Cattle found dead had dark tarry blood, which did not clot, from the natural orifices, and assumed the typical “sawhorse” posture.

It was suggested that the outbreaks were natrax with a long dry spell with high humidity and higher than normal soil temper-atures, after a proceeding wet winter in a poorly drained area where operations were performed to atnrax irrigated pasture, water channels and drainage systems.

Blood smears showed large Gram-positive rods, isolated or blvinos chains, similar to B. In Outbreak 7 cattle of different ages were affected.

A spotlight on anthrax. The disease affected young and adult cattle mainly during summer. Epidemiologic response to anthrax outbreaks: In Outbreak 2 only part of the herd had been vaccinated, and only one animal from the non-vaccinated cattle died. Epidemiologic conditions for the occurrence of anthrax have been studied in countries where the disease is endemic.


Outbreak 10 occurred in a paddock where a large pond was almost dry and was the only area of the paddock with green pasture; in consequence the animals stayed there for long periods. The occurrence of tick fever on two farms in the same period boovinos anthrax occurred made em diagnosis of the disease difficult. Investigation of an anthrax outbreak in Alberta bvoinos using a geographic information system.

In Outbreak 2 the farmer informed that in a neighboring farm approximately 30 cattle died with the same disease. Diagnosis can be reliably made with the polychromatic methylene blue staining bvoinos blood or exudates smears. It is suggested that in flooded areas the spores of Bacillus anthracis float and disperse, and later, under dry conditions, they concentrate causing outbreaks Turner et al.

If the smears are positive for B.


In Outbreak 4 there was the possibility of B. The region where the disease occurs is characterized by low and plain lands, subject to flooding and used to antrxa rice, soybean or other grains, and for animal grazing, alternatively.

Epidemiological data of those outbreaks are presented in Table 1. In Outbreak 7 the farmer reported that the disease was occurring since some months ago, with sporadic deaths, and that it affected also 15 sheep out of 1, and 4 horses out of Previous reports of the disease in the region suggest that annual vaccination of cattle was the reason for the low frequency of anthrax Schild et al.

Anthrax is a highly fatal infectious disease caused by Bacillus anthracis ajtrax, a Gram- positive, aerobic, encapsulated bacillus which produces spores that in favorable conditions can persist in the environment for decades before infecting the host.

The source of infection was not established; but the reduced rainfall, associated with low, flat, flooded lands used for agriculture followed by animal grazing after harvest was probably related to the disease occurrence.

Ten outbreaks of anthrax were confirmed from January to Marchrepresenting 0.

The reason for this difference in the occurrence of the disease between sheep and cattle is unknown.
