Bordetella bronchiseptica


Also found in: Dictionary, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

Bordetella bronchiseptica

a bacterial species found in a broad range of animal species, causing atrophic rhinitis of swine, bronchopneumonia in rodents, respiratory disease in cats, and a highly contagious bronchopneumonia in dogs. It is a rare cause of opportunistic respiratory tract infection in immunocompromised human patients.

Bordetella bronchiseptica

A small, aerobic, gram-negative bacillus which is part of normal respiratory flora of domestic mammals—e.g., dogs, cats—but not humans.
 
Clinical findings
Bordetella bronchiseptica is an uncommon opportunistic infection in immune compromised hosts, causing pneumonia, bacteremia, UTIs, meningitis and endocarditis.
 
Mode of transmission
Contaminated aerosols from pets.

Bordetella

a genus of gram-negative bacteria which cause respiratory disease in a number of species.

Bordetella avium
the cause of turkey coryza. Previously called Alcaligenes fecalis.
Bordetella bronchiseptica
a small, gram-negative, motile bacillus. A normal inhabitant of the respiratory tract in humans, dogs and pigs, but also causes pneumonia, stillbirths, abortions, canine infectious tracheobronchitis (see kennel cough) and atrophic rhinitis in pigs.
Bordetella parapertussis
implicated in pneumonia in sheep, in association with Mannheimia haemolytica.
Bordetella pertussis
the cause of whooping cough in humans. Used as an adjuvant for immunostimulation.

The disease appears to be multifactorial and a number of viral and bacterial pathogens have been reported as potential aetiological agents, including Canine Parainfluenza virus, Canine Adenovirus, Herpesvirus, Reovirus and Bordetella bronchiseptica, Mycoplasmas etc (Veland, 1989).
Los agentes virales son considerados un importante componente de este complejo, siendo los mas frecuentes el virus del Sindrome Respiratorio y Reproductivo Porcino (PRRS), Influenza porcina, Aujeszky, Coronavirus Respiratorio Porcino, Parainfluenza 3, Circovirus II e Influenza porcina (Bochev, 2007) y bacterias como Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae y Bordetella bronchiseptica (Rosete et al.
