Zusammenfassung

In den Jahren 1996 und 1997 kam es zu insgesamt 20 Ausbrüchen spongiformer Enzephalopathien in Schaf- und Ziegenherden in Apulien, Sizilien, Sardinien und der Toskana. Insgesamt waren mehr als 1000 Tiere betroffen, die Inzidenzraten in den einzelnen Herden lagen zwischen 1% und 90%. Die ungewöhnliche zeitliche Häufung spricht für akzidentelle Übertragungen. Eine Infektion über mit Tiermehl kontaminiertem Futter erscheint jedoch unwahrscheinlich, da mehrere der Herden niemals derartiges Tierfutter erhalten hatten.
