Detection and Analysis of Six Lizard Adenoviruses by Consensus Primer PCR Provides Further Evidence of a Reptilian Origin for the Atadenoviruses
Phylogenetic analysis indicated that these viruses belong to the genus Atadenovirus, supporting the reptilian origin of atadenoviruses.
Reptile neoplasia: a retrospective study of case submissions to a specialty diagnostic service.
Clinicopathologic Features of a Systemic Coronavirus-Associated Disease Resembling Feline Infectious Peritonitis in the Domestic Ferret (Mustela putorius)
Clinical findings were anorexia, weight loss, diarrhea, and large, palpable intra-abdominal masses; less frequent findings included hind limb paresis, central nervous system signs, vomiting, and dyspnea; frequent hematologic findings were mild anemia, thrombocytopenia, and hypergammaglobulinemia.
Spontaneous tumours in captive African hedgehogs (Atelerix albiventris): a retrospective study.
The integumentary, haemolymphatic, digestive and endocrine systems were common sites for tumours in hedgehogs diagnosed at Northwest ZooPath; the most common tumours were mammary gland adenocarcinoma, lympho-sarcoma and oral squamous cell carcinoma.
Clinico-pathologic Features of Fatal Disease Attributed to New Variants of Endotheliotropic Herpesviruses in Two Asian Elephants (Elephas maximus)
In addition to ascites, widespread visceral edema, petechiae, and capillary damage previously reported, important findings with EEHV3 infection were the presence of grossly visible renal medullary hemorrhage, a tropism for larger veins and arteries in various tissues, relatively high density of renal herpetic inclusions, and involvement of the retinal vessels, which indicate a less selective organ tropism, and this may confer a higher degree of virulence for EEhV3.

The peracute nature of the infections precluded any successful medical intervention, making prevention by exclusion the principal means to control hemoprotozoal transmission.

Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome in African Pygmy Hedgehogs (Atelerix spp.)
The characteristic histopathology of WHS is vacuolization of the white matter of the brain and spinal cord, and associated neurogenic muscle atrophy, and there is no inflammation of the central nervous system associated with WHS.
