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… Expand
Ingestion of foreign body in green iguana (Iguana iguana).
TLDR
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. Expand

Efficacy of Single-Dose Oxfendazole to Treat Oxyurid Nematodiasis in the Green Iguana (Iguana iguana)
TLDR
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. Expand
Diagnostic Studies on Gastroenteritis in Conjunction with the Anatomical and Histological Studies on the Gastrointestinal Tract of the Egyptian Tortoise (Testudo kleinmanni)
TLDR
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. Expand
Occurrence of health-compromising protozoan and helminth infections in tortoises kept as pet animals in Germany
TLDR
The saline faecal smear technique proved to be efficient in detecting different metazoan and protozoan parasite stages in tortoise faeces, and the prevalence of oxyurid infections was particularly high. Expand
Prevalence and intensity of gastrointestinal parasites in the vulnerable spur-thighed tortoise (Testudo graeca) from the central-western of Morocco
TLDR
The results showed a difference of infection between the two localities, which could be in relation with habitat quality, and statistical analysis showed that the prevalence of infection by ascarids was significantly higher in adults than in juveniles. Expand
