Abstract

A one and a half month old Holstein calf was presented with a chronic respiratory condition. Clinical examination revealed cachexia and lymphadenopathy and wheezes and crepitations on auscultation. Blood cell count indicated a non-regenerative microcytic anaemia and marked lymphopenia. Broncho-pneumonia due to Mycoplasma bovis was diagnosed after radiography and cytobacteriology of transtracheal lavage. A large cell lymphoma was suspected after finding a high proportion of large lymphocytes in a lymph node puncture aspirate. Serology for bovine leukosis was negative. A diagnosis of juvenile lymphoma associated with M. bovis broncho-pneumonia was established. The diagnosis was confirmed on post-mortem. Juvenile lymphoma is rare. Affected animals are aged between two and six months and systematically present generalised lymphadenopathy. This disease is always fatal. When an animal is presented with generalised lymphadenopathy, this condition should be eliminated by lymph node puncture of a moderately hypertrophied lymph node before other tests are performed [Italian] Una vitella di razza Holstein di un mese e mezzo viene colpita da una patologia respiratoria cronica. All´esame clinico si evidenzia cachessia e poli-adenomegalia, sibili e crepitii all´auscultazione.

Le immagini radiografiche e l´esame citobatteriologico del liquido di lavaggio transtracheale mettono in evidenza una broncopolmonite da Mycoplasma bovis. L´alta percentuale di grandi linfociti rinvenuta in un campione prelevato tramite ago-aspirazione da un linfonodo depone a favore di un linfoma a grandi cellule. L´esame sierologico per la leucosi bovina è negativo. Viene formulata la diagnosi di linfoma giovanile, associato a broncopolmonite da Mycoplasma bovis. L´animale viene sottoposto a eutanasia e l´esame necroscopico conferma la diagnosi.}
