Abstract An imported 2.5-yr-old female green iguana (Iguana iguana rhinolopa) kept in Greece was presented with a history of anorexia and allotriophagy of 1 mo duration. Upon clinical examination, it was cachectic and had severe abdominal distension and fibrous osteodystrophy. Despite treatment, it died a month later. On necropsy, massive accumulations of threadlike nematode parasites were observed in the large intestine, identified as Ozolaimus megatyphlon, a member of the Oxyuridae family of… 

Ingestion of foreign body in green iguana (Iguana iguana).

The ingestion of foreign bodies in reptiles is a common problem and can lead to severe clinical conditions in terms of the obstruction the digestive tract, particularly in animals with high demand for pet iguanas.

Efficacy of Single-Dose Oxfendazole to Treat Oxyurid Nematodiasis in the Green Iguana (Iguana iguana)

The single oral dose of oxfendazole was found to be 100% effective (100% FECR) at eliminating nematodes from the GI tract 4 wk post-treatment, without any obvious morbidity or mortality.

Diagnostic Studies on Gastroenteritis in Conjunction with the Anatomical and Histological Studies on the Gastrointestinal Tract of the Egyptian Tortoise (Testudo kleinmanni)

This study compared anatomically the healthy and unhealthy gastrointestinal tracts of Egyptian tortoises and revealed many intra epithelial parasitic stages all over intestinal villi accompanied with underlying lamina propria or intra epithetic eosinophilic infiltrations.
