ⓘ Taylorella equigenitalis

Taylorella equigenitalis is a Gram-negative bacterium of the genus Taylorella, and the causative agent of contagious equine metritis in horses.

Infected stallions are asymptomatic and act as the principal source of infection as they mate with numerous mares, and the carrier status may persist for many months or even years.

                                     

1. Diagnosis

Diagnosis of CEM is achieved by PCR or culturing the organism from urethral fossa, urethra, and semen of stallions and the clitoral sinus and clitoral fossa of mares. One or two swabs from smegma of clitorial sinuses and/or fossae are taken and transferred in AMIES transport medium with charcoal at 4 °C to a laboratory. The volume of the sample on the swab is not relevant, as even a low volume of smegma may harbor this pathogen.
