Abstract

Abomasal mucosal mast cell and eosinophil accumulation was morphometrically evaluated in 26 Holstein steers after natural or experimental infection with Ostertagia ostertagi. Results showed that following infection, accumulation of mast cells and eosinophils in abomasal tissue was dependent on infection pattern. Eosinophilia was greater in steers with type 1 ostertagiosis, while mastocytosis was more pronounced in steers with type 2 ostertagiosis.
