Abstract

Canine distemper virus (CDV) has long been recognized as a cause of myocarditis; however, cases of myocarditis caused by naturally acquired CDV infection have been reported only rarely in dogs.

Abstract

This study aimed to detect Trypanosoma cruzi kDNA from paraffin-embedded cardiac tissue in eighteen dogs with myocarditis which presented sudden death and/or signs suggestive of canine trypanosomiasis. The PCR was positive in 7 dogs with myocarditis and amastigotes of T. cruzi and in 11 dogs with ...
