Malignant catarrhal fever infection in a heifer in Jordan
AbstractA 14-month-old Holstein Friesian heifer was presented for decreased appetite, ocular discharge, and diarrhea. The heifer was raised at the farm since she was 3 days old. On presentation, the heifer had bilateral mucopurulent ocular discharge and corneal opacity, ulcerative and necrotic skin, and enlarged superficial lymph nodes. Malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) infection was diagnosed based on clinical signs and PCR. MCF infection has never been reported in Jordan.
