Zusammenfassung

In diesem Fallbericht wird eine eosinophile Dermatitis um die Präputialöffnung eines Dahomey-Ochsen beschrieben, die durch eine Insektenstich-Hypersensitivität gegen Culicoides spp. verursacht wurde. Nach bestem Wissen und Gewissen der Autoren ist dies der erste Bericht, der einen intradermalen und serologischen Allergietest bei einem Rind beschreibt.
