Meat inspection problems in bovine nephritis


, : Meat inspection problems in bovine nephritis. Acta Veterinaria Academiae Scientiarum Hungaricae 27(4): 349-355

The carcases of 70 bovines routinely or emergency slaughtered in abattoirs were subjected to complementary bacteriological examination after meat inspection, on account of nephritis. Pyelonephritis was found in 35 cases (50.0%), focal interstitial nephritis in 13 (18.6%), hematogenic purulent nephritis in 12 (17.1%) and other renal involvement in 10 (14.3%). Isolates from the affected kidneys were identified in the sequence of frequency as Corynebacterium pyogenes (21 cases; 30.0%), Proteus spp. (11 cases; 15.7%), Escherichia coli (9 cases; 12.9%), and C. renale (3 cases; 4.3%); mixed infection occurred in 5 cases, and rare pathogens were isolated in 4 cases. Septicemia was concomitant upon the renal involvement in 9 cases (12.9%), bacteriemia in 18 cases (25.7%). Further frequently encountered unfitness factors were offensive odor (urine-like smell) and edema. The meat was fit for consumption without restriction only in 20 (28.6%) of the 70 cases, while in the remaining 50 cases (71.4%) it was either unfit or was released on condition. The proportion of fitness was the greatest among the cases with focal interstitial nephritis and pyelonephritis, and the lowest in hematogenic purulent nephritis. Bovine nephritis deserves special attention at meat inspection, and complementary bacteriological examination is imperative in each proved or suspected case.
