Abstract

FRANCISCATO, Carina et al. Cão naturalmente infectado por Trypanosoma evansi em Santa Maria, RS, Brasil. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2007, vol.37, n.1, pp.288-291. ISSN 0103-8478.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782007000100049.

This paper describes the hematological alterations and proteinogram of a dog naturally infected by Trypanosoma evansi. This dog was presented with normochromic-normocytic anemia, leucopenia with lymphopenia followed for neutrophenia and lymphocitosis; and trombocitopenia. Hyperproteinemia with an increase of beta and gamma globulin fractions and hypoalbuminemia. By being the first case reported of T. evansi infection in dogs in Santa Maria, RS, Brazil, the epidemiological significance of such findings will alert the veterinarians to the existence of a possible parasite's reservoir in the region warning to the possibility of new laboratory findings.

Keywords : Trypanosoma evansi; dogs; anemia; hypoalbuminemia; hypergamaglobulinemia.
