T. equi was previously designated as Babesia equi (B. equi) but now it is often reclassified as a Theileria. Theileria is a genus of parasites that belongs to the phylum Apicomplexa and is closely related to Plasmodium. T. equi infectioncauses equine piroplasmosis, a tick-borne disease of horses. The clinical signs of equine piroplasmosis include anemia, weight loss and lethargy, often with a chronic history of unthriftness. Other signs, indicative of acute infection, include fever (> 40°C), depression, reduced appetite, pallor, icterus, dyspnoea, petechiation, colic, eyelid and distal limb oedema and incoordination. The chronic disease generally presents variable clinical signs, making the diagnosis difficult. An assessment of serologic identification of T. equi, requires a measurement of antibody to T. equi in serum.
