Facial Eczema

Facial eczema in cattle is a condition caused by the ingestion of mycotoxins produced by the fungus Pithomyces chartarum. This fungus grows on pasture grasses, particularly in warm and humid conditions. The mycotoxins produced by Pithomyces chartarum, specifically sporidesmin, can be toxic to cattle when ingested.

Facial eczema in cattle affects the liver primarily through the ingestion of mycotoxins, particularly sporidesmin, produced by the fungus Pithomyces chartarum. Once the mycotoxin is ingested by the cattle, it has several detrimental effects on the liver, leading to liver damage and dysfunction. Here's how facial eczema impacts the cattle liver:

Release of Sporidesmin

  • Cattle consume pasture contaminated with the fungus Pithomyces chartarum during grazing.
  • The fungus produces sporidesmin, a mycotoxin that is released into the bloodstream after ingestion.

Toxic Effects on Liver Cells

  • Sporidesmin primarily targets the cells of the liver, causing oxidative damage and cellular injury.

Damage to Bile Ducts

  • The mycotoxin damages the bile ducts within the liver. Bile is essential for the digestion and absorption of fats in the small intestine.

Impaired Liver Function

  • The damage to liver cells and bile ducts impairs the normal function of the liver.
  • Liver function involves detoxification, metabolism, and the synthesis of various proteins, including those involved in blood clotting and immune response.


  • One of the characteristic features of facial eczema is photosensitisation. The mycotoxin affects the skin's response to sunlight.
  • The damaged liver is unable to process phylloerythrin, a substance that accumulates in the blood. When the skin is exposed to sunlight, this accumulated phylloerythrin reacts with sunlight, leading to skin damage.

Skin Lesions and Inflammation

  • The interaction between sunlight and accumulated phylloerythrin causes inflammation and damage to the skin, particularly in areas exposed to sunlight, such as the face and ears.
  • This results in the characteristic reddening, swelling, and crusting of the skin seen in facial eczema.

Secondary Infections

  • The compromised skin may be susceptible to secondary bacterial infections, further complicating the condition.

    Facial eczema, if not addressed promptly, can lead to significant liver damage and impact the overall health of affected cattle. Early detection, removal from contaminated pastures, and veterinary intervention are crucial for managing and treating facial eczema in cattle.
