Sweating sickness (cattle)
Sweating sickness is "an acute, febrile, tickborne toxicosis characterized mainly by a profuse, moist eczema and hyperemia of the skin and visible mucous membranes." It affects cattle, mainly calves, mostly in southern and eastern Africa. It is caused by toxins that develop in some ticks of the Hyalomma truncatum species.
