Titre Recognizing contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (Revised Edition)
Résumé Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is a well known scourge of cattle in Africa and elsewhere. On entering previously uninfected cattle populations, it often causes an explosive epidemic with high mortality. In endemic situations, the disease is known for its insidious spread and debilitating effects on cattle production. The difficulties experienced in diagnosing and combating the disease pose a serious challenge to all stakeholders. The fact that CBPP is still a major problem in Africa has prompted FAO to revise the previous edition of this booklet with larger pictures of clinical signs and gross pathological changes of CBPP, as a means of assisting those dealing with the disease to recognize it, make a proper diagnosis and take the appropriate action to curtail its spread.
