In 40 cats with chronic renal failure was at 27.5% (11/40) observed anemia. This finding was in most cases of moderate range and in significant number of patients was related to non-renal ethiopathogenetic factors such as oncologic statuses and feline infectious peritonitis. The finding of anemia...

Abstract

Hemotropic mycoplasma are small, cell-wall-free bacteria that can infect various mammalian species, including humans. They cannot be cultured in vitro; therefore, animal models play an important role, e.g. for pathogenesis studies. Mycoplasma haemofelis (Mhf) is the most pathogenic of the three ...

Abstract

Haemotropic mycoplasma represent an important cause of anaemia in cats worldwide. Previously known as Haemobartonella sp., sequencing of the 16S rRNA genes of these organisms has led to their reclassification as Mycoplasma. Two species have been identified in cats, M. haemofelis and M. haemominutum...
