Abstract

Summary

Pleural abscesses are a frequent complication in horses with pleuropneumonia. Their treatment is not easy, and requires time and it is expensive. A 13 years old creole argentine gelding presented a severe pleuropneumonia subsequently complicated with pleural abscess. The use of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (fenylbutazone), an aggressive antibiotherapy (ceftiofur, ampicillin, and gentamicin), echoguide drainage and lavage with yodopovidone to 0.05% of the abscesses permitted the successful recuperation of the patient of this case report.
