AbstractThe purpose of this study is to describe the occurrence of abortion between days 7 and 11 post infection in an experimental ovine toxoplasmosis infection. These abortions differ from classical toxoplasmosis, where abortions occur one month after infection. Furthermore, histological changes found in acute abortions, placenta] thrombosis and foetal leukomalacia foci, are different from those normally observed in ovine toxoplasmosis, suggesting differences in the pathogenetic mechanisms of the two presentations. At the time of abortion, the mothers were seronegative for T. gondii infection and the parasite was absent, or in low quantities, in placen tal and foetal samples, which would compromise the diagnosis of this condition in natural cases of infection.
