Resumen

MALLMANN, Carlos A.; SANTURIO, Janio M.  y  DILKIN, Paulo. Equine leukoencephalomalacia associated with ingestion of corn contaminated with fumonisin B1. Rev. Microbiol. [online]. 1999, vol.30, n.3, pp. 249-252. ISSN 0001-3714.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0001-37141999000300011.

This article describes clinical, etiologic and pathologic diagnosis of an outbreak of equine leukoencephalomalacia. Two samples of the corn consumed by the affected horses contained fumonisin B1 at levels of 46 and 53 µg/g and Fusarium moniliforme, a good in vitro mycotoxin producer.

Palabras llave : corn; leukoencephalomalacia; fumonisin; Fusarium moniliforme; chromatography.
