Epizootic haemorrhagic disease (EHD) is a viral infection of wild and domestic ruminants including cattle and deer. Epizootic haemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV), causative agent of the disease, is transmitted by Culicoides biting midges. Although clinical disease is reported in cattle, the disease is more severe in white-tailed deer with high mortal...

Bovine herpesviruses type 1 (BoHV-1) and type 5 (BoHV-5) are tw o genetically and antigenically closely related alphaherpesviruses that infect cattle. BoHV-1 has been associated w ith various clinical syndromes, such as respiratory (infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) and genital infections (infectious pustular vulvovaginitisinfectious pustular balanopostitis (IPV/IPB), abortions and occasionally encephalitis. BoHV-5 has been associated w ith meningoencephalitis in young cattle w hich induces high mortality rates and lethal encephalitis, respiratory and genital tract infections. BoHV-1 and BoHV-5 are responsible for substantial economic losses w orldw ide due to their infectious. In Turkey, prevalence of bovine herpesviruses has been estimated mainly based on serological methods. How ever, these calculations w ere based on serological assays that do not allow differentiation betw een BoHV-1 and BoHV-5 infections, because of the crossreactivity observed w ith antibodies of BoHV-1 and BoHV-5 infected animals. Thus, the true prevalence of BoHV-1 and BoHV-5 infections is unknow n in Turkey. In this study, lung tissue samples w ill be collected from cattle that have been culled due to respiratory system problems from the epidemiologically independent herds in the Central Anatolian and Mediterranean Regions. The presence of BoHV-1 and BoHV-5 w ill be investigated by multiplex real time PCR. Furthermore, histopathologic examination w ill be carried out in BoHV-1 and/or BoHV-5 positive lung tissue samples. Thus, the etiological roles of BoHV-1 and BoHV-5 in respiratory tract infections w ill be determined; also epidemiological and histopathologic data w ill be obtained.
