estrogenic substances
are used in treatment of animals for diseases of the reproductive tract. In some countries they are still used as growth promotants in food animals. They also occur naturally in cultivated plants, e.g. subterranean clover, in fungi growing on plants and plant products, e.g. Fusarium graminearum, F. roseum. Poisoning with estrogens can occur in any of these circumstances. The clinical signs are, in general terms, feminization of males, and in females nymphomaniac activity and infertility due to endometrial changes, prolapse of the cervix and uterus and maternal dystocia due to uterine inertia. See also trifolium, fusariotoxicosis, growth promotants.
