      ARTÍCULO PUBLICADO EN REVISTA EXTERNA. In this work, we analyze data that support an epidemiological link between cases of canine monocytic ehrlichiosis (CME) by Ehrlichia canis and the presence of Rhipicephalus sanguineus sensu stricto as vector in an endemic area for this tick in Argentina. In a blood sample of a 1-year-old toy poodle with CME compatible clinical signs, which showed CME typical morulae in monocytes in Giemsa-stained blood smear, DNA of E. canis was detected by PCR. Further, DNA of E. canis was also detected in a female of R. sanguineus s.s. collected on the infected dog. ...
    • Ocurrencia de Ehrlichia canis en Caninos de la provincia de Mendoza 

      Mera y Sierra, Roberto; Neira, Gisela (Editorial UMaza, 2014-10)
      La ehrlichiosis es producida por bacterias que parasitan leucocitos y plaquetas. Sus vectores son las garrapatas: Riphicephalus sanguineus, Amblyomma americanum y Dermacentor variabilis. En Venezuela se aisló E. canis de humanos, perros y R. sanguineus. Se halló E. canis y Anaplasma platys, asociados a Babesia vogeli y Hepatozoon canis en caninos de Argentina. En Mendoza hay reportes de Hepatozoon canis en perros, un protozoo no zoonótico transmitido por garrapatas. Además en nuestra provincia se ha documentado la presencia de Riphicephalus sanguineus y Amblyomma tigrinum.
