Title : Equine poisoning by Senecio in France
Authors : BLANCHE PASSEMARD, NATHALIE PRIYMENKO
Summary : Cases of equine poisoning by Senecio are increasingly common in France. This is due to proliferation of these very hardy plants, resistant both to drought and cold, which spread over the land to the detriment of more fragile plant species. Senecio contain hepatotoxic substances: pyrrolizidine alkaloids. Regular ingestion of this toxin generates lesions, mostly hepatic, which are irreversible and often lethal. This article aims to take stock of current knowledge on these plants and link it to twelve cases of intoxication observed in the South of France in 2004.
