Abstract


Theileria equi é um dos hemoparasitas responsáveis pela doença Piroplasmose equina e afeta a saúde e bem-estar do animal, além de ocasionar prejuízo econômico. É transmitida por carrapatos e as principais manifestações clínicas são febre, letargia, anorexia, perda de peso, edema periférico, anemia, insuficiência renal e abortos, embora o animal possa ser portador assintomático durante longo período de vida. A prevalência varia de acordo com a localização geográfica e incidência de vetores, sendo os principais: Rhipicephalus microplus e Amblyomma cajennense. Este relato se refere a um equino da raça Lusitano, de 12 anos de idade estabulado na cidade de São Paulo, Brasil, que apresentou desconforto e edemaciação de membros, e em pesquisa de hemoparasitas foi diagnosticado Theileria equi. Optou-se pelo tratamento homeopático pela ausência de efeitos colaterais. Após 30 dias de terapia, o exame foi refeito e obteve-se o diagnóstico negativo em pesquisa de hemoparasitas, além da melhora das manifestações clínicas e restabelecimento do animal ao esporte.
