Abstract

Mycotoxins are secondary metabolities produced by certain filamentous microscopic fungi, which occur naturally in the environment and may persist in animal feed. In addition to the pathological effects associated with gross and histological changes, a mycotoxin contaminated diet may lead to feed refusal, poor feed conversion and diminished body weight gain which are responsible for great economical losses.The present review summarizes the pathological lesions caused by the most widespread mycotoxins, aflatoxins and ochratoxin, potentially hazardous ingredients of rabbit feed.
