  New paper: Neurobrucellosis in Stranded Dolphins, Costa Rica (Gabriela
Hernández- Mora)

Dear MARMAM readers,

I am pleased to announce the publication of the following article in
Emerging Infectious Diseases Journal (abstract below):

Hernández-Mora G, González-Barrientos R, Morales J-A, Chaves-Olarte E,
Guzmán-Verri C, Baquero-Calvo E, *De-Miguel M.J.,  Marín C.M,  Blasco J.M,
and E. Moreno** *Neurobrucellosis in stranded dolphins, Costa Rica. 2008. Emerg
Infect Dis  Sep;14(9):1430-3


Ten striped dolphins, *Stenella coeruleoalba*, stranded along the Costa
Rican Pacific coast, had meningoencephalitis and antibodies against *
Brucella* spp. *Brucella ceti* was isolated from cerebrospinal fluid of 6
dolphins and 1 fetus. *S. coeruleoalba* constitutes a highly susceptible
host and a potential reservoir for *B. ceti* transmission.

Pdf copies are available on request: ghernandez at fundacionketo.org or
