Diagnosis of atrophic rhinitis in a Simmental heifer by computed tomography

Vet Rec. 2000 May 6;146(19):558-60. doi: 10.1136/vr.146.19.558.


Atrophic rhinitis was diagnosed in a 10-month-old heifer with the assistance of computed tomography. The aetiology of the condition in cattle is uncertain and the clinical disease may be overlooked owing to the lack of signs such as the shortening or deformity of the snout observed in pigs.
