Abstract

Three Holstein Friesian cows aged 10 to 44 month old showed systemic and nodular dermatitis in the summer of 1990 and 1991, and the recovery was seen within a week after administration of adrenocorticoids and antihistaminics. Biopsy revealed incrustation of the epidermis and degeneration of collagen fibers with a considerable infiltration of eosinophiles in the dermis, suggesting allergic etiology.
