Targeted and comprehensive diagnostic procedures can be used to understand the various causes of the circumstances surrounding spontaneous abortion and help us take appropriate measures.
Because of aetiology, a distinction is made between abortions with infectious and non-infectious causes. The timing (early or late miscarriage) may provide an indication of the cause.
Abortions or miscarriages of non-infectious nature may be caused by intoxication, hormone disorders, trauma, stress or deformities etc.
Abortions or miscarriages with infectious causes (septic abortions) are due to various viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungal infections. Septic abortions in particular mostly occur in large numbers in livestock groups and may also represent a zoonotic risk. Consequently, statutory provisions must also be observed given the occurrence of spontaneous abortions.
