    Enzootic Bovine Leukosis
    Summary
    Enzootic bovine leukosis (EBL) is a disease of adult
    cattle caused by the retrovirus, bovine leukaemia virus
    (BLV). Cattle may be infected at any age, including the
    embryonic stage. Most infections are subclinical, but a
    proportion of cattle (approx. 30%) over 3 years old
    develop persistent lymphocytosis, and a smaller
    proportion develop lymphosarcomas (tumours) in various
    internal organs. Natural infection has also been recorded
    in buffaloes, sheep and capybaras. Clinical signs, if
    present, depend on the organs affected. Cattle with
    lymphosarcomas almost invariably die either suddenly, or
    weeks or months after the onset of clinical signs.
