Aalbæk B, Østergaard S, Buhl R, Jensen HE, Christensen H, Bisgaard M. Actinobacillus equuli subsp. equuli associated with equine valvular endocarditis. APMIS 2007;115:1437–42.

Microbiological and pathological data from a case of equine valvular endocarditis are reported. Limited information is available on the pathogenic potential of equine Actinobacillus species as several strains originate from apparently healthy horses. After the establishment of two subspecies within this species (1), this seems to be the first report of an etiological association between A. equuli subsp. equuli and equine endocarditis. Furthermore, new information on some phenotypical characteristics of this subspecies is reported, compared to previous findings (1).
