Sarcoptic Mange: An Emerging Panzootic in Wildlife.
TLDR
This review synthesizes the current knowledge concerning the geographic and host taxonomic distribution of mange in wildlife, the epidemiological connections between species, and the potential threat of sarcoptic mange for wildlife conservation and proposes a new agenda for the study of sarcoptes scabiei in wildlife.

First description of sarcoptic mange in a wild coati (Nasua narica), in Ecuador, and cooccurrence of canine distemper virus
TLDR
This is the firstReport of sarcoptic mange and the first report of CDV in white-nosed coatis in South America and the high capacity for disease transmission is reported.
Distribution update, male genitalia, natural history, and conservation of the stump-tailed porcupine Coendou rufescens in South America
Abstract The stump-tailed porcupine, Coendou rufescens, is a widely distributed but scarcely documented species inhabiting the Andean region of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and an isolated population in
First Description of Sarcoptic Mange in a Free-Ranging European Wildcat (Felis silvestris silvestris) from Spain
TLDR
Since this is a species of conservation concern due to its critical demography in the southernmost population of the Iberian Peninsula, the impacts of infectious diseases, including sarcoptic mange, as a new potential threat should be considered during disease surveillance programs of the species’ populations.
Sarcoptic mange; an emerging threat to Chilean wild mammals?
TLDR
Observations of alopecic wild mammals, mainly foxes, their presence in the country, and the number of species fulfilling the case definition have increased over the last 15 years, suggesting the need for an urgent surveillance and management of sarcoptic mange and other diseases that may be threatening Chilean biodiversity.

Notoedric Acariasis in the Porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum)
TLDR
Six of 16 porcupines live-trapped in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania were infested with the mite Notoedres douglasi and the skin lesions consisted of extensive acanthosis and hyperkeratosis with variable cellular infiltrate in the dermis.
Sarcoptic Mange in a South American Gray Fox (Chilla Fox; Lycalopex griseus), Chile

A case of sarcoptic mange is reported in a South American gray fox or chilla fox (Lycalopex griseus) and further research is needed to understand the impact of mange in wildlife populations.
SARCOPTIC MANGE IN SPANISH IBEX FROM SPAIN
TLDR
Both the clinical and the pathological (macroscopic and microscopic) aspects of the sarcoptic mange in Spanish ibex corresponded to the classic description of sarcopto-mange in other wild and domestic small ruminants.
Sarcoptic mange in wildlife
TLDR
The pathogenesis and concordant clinical symptoms of mange depends on the immune status of the respective host, and isolation and treatment of infected individuals may be warranted, and has met with some success in small remaining populations of certain highly endangered species.
Variation in the chaetotaxy and denticulation of Sarcoptes scabiei (Acarina: Sarcoptidae) from wild canids.
TLDR
It is suggested that the conditions associated with epizootics allow for increased phenotypic variability in this character and that the numerical fluctuations of populations during epizotics provide an opportunity for the genetic alteration of these mites.
Richness and distribution of porcupines (Erethizontidae: Coendou) from Colombia
TLDR
The first record of Coendou ichillus from the Orinoco river basin of the country is introduced, extending the distribution of the species by more than 600 km to the north from previous known localities in Ecuador and Peru.
A review of Sarcoptes scabiei: past, present and future
TLDR
Advances toward the development of a diagnostic blood test to detect a scabies infection and a vaccine to protect susceptible populations from becoming infected, or at least limiting the transmission of the disease, are presented.
Diseases and parasites of the common wombat Vombatus ursinus in the Healesville area of Victoria
TLDR
Toxoplasmosis is reported in a wild wombat for the first time and the gross pathology and histopathology of severe sarcoptic mange due to S. scabiei is described.
Current knowledge of studies of pathogens in Colombian mammals
TLDR
This first systematic review of the literature focused on gathering all available data on pathogens in situ in Colombian mammals found that parasites have been the most extensively studied pathogen group, particularly the phyla Arthropoda and Platyhelminthes.
MAMMALIAN WILDLIFE DISEASES AS HAZARDS TO MAN AND LIVESTOCK IN AN AREA OF THE LLANOS ORIENTALES OF COLOMBIA
TLDR
A survey of wild animals common to the Llanos revealed a number of parasites indigenous to the area, and serologic titers and/or isolations of pathogenic viral and bacterial agents generally indicated that the wildlife population had not been exposed to the diseases common toThe domestic population.
