Abstract
Encephalitozoonosis is a common disease of a wide range of mammalian hosts caused by Encephalitozoon cuniculi and the detection of this pathogen in tissue samples is considered difficult. Microsporidia spores of E. cuniculi can be observed in histological sections stained with routine dyes in tissues of experimentally infected animals in the laboratory because the amount of spores is generally large, but in veterinary clinics of domestic and wild animals these stains are often not sufficient for diagnosis. Then, for these cases a variety of techniques, including special staining methods, immunohistochemistry (IHC), electron microscopy and molecular methods are used for diagnosis and exclusion of other microorganisms. The aim of this study was to describe about the use of IHC for the detection of E. cuniculi in tissue samples that have been published to some groups of researchers and veterinary pathologists throughout the world. An English literature search was done through databases (MEDLINE; NCBI, Bethesda, MD, USA) in order to examine publications. We considered papers from 1993 to today that described IHC analysis performed using formalin fixed and paraffin-embedded tissue sections. The diagnosis of encephalitozoonosis using IHC has been made in rabbits (brain, kidneys, lungs, heart, liver, eyes, and spleen), dogs (eyes), horse (villi ofvallantochorion), South American fur seal (lungs, spleen and kidneys), squirrel monkey (brain), emperor tamarins (blood capillaries, arteries, heart, liver, lung, brain and Kidney), cats (brain and kidney), cotton-top tamarins (kidneys and blood), chicken (esophagus, intestine, liver, kidneys, heart, skeletal muscle and brain) and snow leopard (eyes). E. cuniculi was successfully identified in different kind of tissues using IHC. Based on our results, we suggest that IHC should be regarded as a useful tool both for specific demonstration of E. cuniculi and for its localization within tissues helping researchers and veterinary pathologists for the diagnosis of encephalitozoonosis.
