Bovine spongiform encephalopathy BSE , caused by an infectious prion, emerged in the s in Europe as a new disease in cattle and, since then, several actions are being taken for its prevention and control. Restricting the feeding of ruminants with animal by-products and the removal and destruction of specific risk materials SRM for the condition of carcasses in slaughterhouses have been proven effective to control the disease, in addition to the reduction of human exposure to the agent, as this is an important zoonosis. However, in the first atypical cases of BSE were diagnosed, in which the causative agents showed different molecular weights in Western blot WB , compared to the classical form of the agent. In addition to the molecular differences, clinical presentations proved to be differentiated in atypical forms, affecting mainly cattle older than eight years. Because it is a new form of the disease, many studies are being conducted to elucidate the pathogenesis, epidemiology and zoonotic potential of atypical BSE. The aim of this study was to review the main aspects of atypical BSE emphasizing its etiology, epidemiology, clinical signs, diagnosis and control and prevention measures.

Definitions Prion Protein PrP Protein Prion related-proteins PrP are normal components of the cell Neurodegenerative disorders may occur when these normal PrP are converted to misfolded abnormal prions Prions are small infectious protein particles that are resistant to standard forms of inactivation Prion Disease Gene tic, infectious and sporadic neuro-degenerative disorders e.

Signs and symptoms include lack of motor coordination, unsteady gait, and difficulty walking. As the disease progresses, patients develop speech difficulties and dementia. Clinical onset is in the third to sixth decade of life and the mean duration of illness prior to death is five years. Several kindreds with variable clinical and pathologic features have been described.
Pathologic features include cerebral prion protein amyloidosis, and spongiform or neurofibrillary degeneration. Ontology: Kuru C The illness is primarily restricted to adult females and children of both sexes. It is marked by the subacute onset of tremor and ataxia followed by motor weakness and incontinence. Death occurs within months of disease onset. The condition is associated with ritual cannibalism, and has become rare since this practice has been discontinued.
Pathologic features include a noninflammatory loss of neurons that is most prominent in the cerebellum, glial proliferation, and amyloid plaques. From Adams et al. Ontology: Prions C The primary amino acid sequence of the two isoforms is identical. Definition CSP small proteinaceous infectious particle that lacks nucleic acids; pathogen of animals, and apparently man.
Ontology: Scrapie C Definition CSP fatal disease of the nervous system in sheep and goats, characterized by pruritus, debility, and locomotor incoordination, caused by proteinaceous infectious particles called prions. Ontology: Encephalopathy, Bovine Spongiform C Ontology: Prion Diseases C Definition CSP any of various brain diseases in humans and animals in which areas of the brain slowly degenerate and take on a spongy appearance.
These diseases are characterized by conversion of the normal prion protein to an abnormal configuration via a post-translational process. Pathologic features include a spongiform encephalopathy without evidence of inflammation. Ontology: Fatal Familial Insomnia C It affects individuals usually in their fourth decade. Its initial manifestation is difficulty in falling asleep.
It is followed by complete inability to sleep. Patients develop deterioration of their mental and motor functions and die soon after the first symptoms appear, because of the total absence of sleep.
