Résumé:

Signs and pathologic changes of European brown hare syndrome (EBHS) were reproduced in four hares (Lepus europaeus) after experimental inoculation of a liver suspension from hares from Belgium, which naturally died of EBHS. Virus particles were demonstrated by electron microscopy in the liver of an experimentally infected hare. They were spherical with a diameter of 28 to 30 nm. After density gradient centrifugation, virus particles were detected in the density zone of 1.34 g/ml. Based on immunoelectron microscopy with a convalescent serum, we identified the virus as the cause of EBHS. Clin…
