Abstract

Aflatoxins are a group of mycotoxins produced by Aspergillus, spp. A. flavus and parasiticus. Peanuts, maize, coconut cake and cotton cake are the most contaminated feeds. Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) is the most common and the most thoroughly studied for its high toxicity in humans as in different animal species. The target organ of AFB1 is the liver. Instead of other animal species, published information related to the toxicity of this mycotoxin in Equine are scarce. The major clinical symptoms of aflatoxicosis observed in this species include ataxia, tremor, loss of appetite, anorexia, weight loss, icterus, haemorrhages.
