A review of polioencephalomalacia in ruminants: is the development of malacic lesions associated with excess sulfur intake independent of thiamine deficiency?
Other differential diagnoses in cattle include bovine herpesvirus 5 encephalitis; listeriosis; toxicosis caused by ticks; polioencephalomalacia; hypocalcemia; hypomagnesemia; intoxications by lead, sodium chloride, organophosphates and chlorinated hydrocarbons; ingestion of mycotoxins produced by Aspergillus clavatus (known as the barley fungus); and ingestion of plants from genus Senna spp.
If the animal survives the initial episode of grain overload, secondary effects include, but are not limited to, enterotoxemia, polioencephalomalacia, liver abscesses, and chronic laminitis (Merck Veterinary Manual 2008).
In ruminants, consumption of excess sulfur can lead to a disorder called polioencephalomalacia, abbreviated PEM, and also referred to as cerebrocortical necrosis.
In addition, it can lead to thiamine deficiency (also known as polioencephalomalacia)--so injections of thiamine or fortified vitamin B may be required at the same time.
Polioencephalomalacia (PEM) or "blind staggers" is a disorder in ruminants that may be caused by a thiamin deficiency.
