The experiment was made during October 2008- February 2009 within a farm from Cluj County, on 20 cattle presenting or not clinical ringworm lesions. The determination of the parameters was realized within the Immunology and Psychophysiology departments of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Cluj-Napoca. We obtained an increase of the total leucocytes number during the infection that confirmed the existence of an immune response from the organism in order to limitate the cutaneous lesions gravity.
