A squamous cell carcinoma and an adenocarcinoma in Australian treefrogs.

Abstract

We describe the pathology in a captive adult White lipped treefrog (Litoria infrafrenata) with a squamous cell carcinoma of the skin and a free-living adult Common green treefrog (L. caerulea) with an adenocarcinoma of the skin. Although many amphibian neoplasms have been reported world wide, none had been described in Australian species.
