Lungworm infection (Halocercus sp.) in the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) was found to be very common in animals captured from the wild and in those raised within an aquarium. Infection of the Amazon dolphin (Inia geoffrensis) with Hunterotrema caballeroi causes pulmonary atelectasis. An unidentified holotrich ciliate was found in the blowholes of over 50% of the animals examined and was responsible for a purulent pneumonia in 1 instance. Hepatic and pancreatic trematodiasis… Expand
PARASITE-RELATED LESIONS IN A BEARDED SEAL, Erignathus barbatus1
  • L. Bishop
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of wildlife diseases
  • 1979
TLDR
A free-ranging adult male bearded seal killed by polar bears was salvaged and examined at necropsy, finding diffuse intrahepatic bile duct fibrosis and chronic cholangitis; multiple nodules of chronic fibrosing pancreatitis; and gastric ulcers. Expand
Non-neoplastic lesions in beluga whales (Delphinapterus leucas) and other marine mammals from the St Lawrence Estuary.
TLDR
Overall, the incidence of degenerative, infectious, hyperplastic or necrotic lesions, in addition to numerous neoplasms described in another paper, was considerably higher than that found in marine mammals elsewhere or in other species of marine mammal from the same waters. Expand
Hepatic Lesions in Cetaceans Stranded in the Canary Islands
TLDR
The gross, histopathologic, and ultrastructural findings of the livers of cetaceans stranded on the coast of the Canary Islands between 1992 and 2000 are described, and possible causes of these inclusions are discussed. Expand
Diseases of captive marine mammals.
TLDR
Bacterial and parasitic infections were found in sea leopards, and one animal died as the result of gastric impaction by 23 kg of stones and shells, and an unidentified upper respiratory infection was twice observed in Californian sea lions. Expand
Pholeter gastrophilus (Trematoda: Heterophyidae), a parasite of dolphins from Brazilian waters
TLDR
The present study increases the distribution area of this trematode species and provides new molecular data to be used in future phylogenetic studies of the group, thus contributing to scientific knowledge on marine parasites. Expand
Gastric lesions in dolphins stranded along the Eastern Adriatic coast.
TLDR
It is argued that observed 'tolerant' host-parasite interactions that led toward gastric lesions do not represent the cause of death and stranding of cetaceans included in this study. Expand
Gastrointestinal parasites of free-living Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) in the Northern Red Sea, Egypt
TLDR
The present study represents the first report on the gastrointestinal parasite fauna infecting the free-living and alive Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins inhabiting waters of the Red Sea at Hurghada, Egypt and molecularly identified adult worms of Anisakis typica in individual dolphin vomitus samples by molecular analyses. Expand
Thirty year retrospective evaluation of pneumonia in a bottlenose dolphin Tursiops truncatus population.
TLDR
The present study demonstrates the high susceptibility of dolphins to respiratory infections, and areas that warrant further investigation include eosinophilic pneumonia, chronic infections, co-infections, and metabolic or iron-storage diseases. Expand
Parasites from an Atlantic bottle-nose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), and a revised checklist of parasites of this host
TLDR
Helminth parasites were recovered from a male Atlantic bottle-nose dolphin found dead in Otago Harbour, South Island, New Zealand, found to have a kidney neoplasm and Skrjabinalius cryptocephalus is reported from this host for the first time. Expand
Parasites of cetaceans stranded on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica
Information regarding parasitic fauna of cetaceans from Costa Rica is provided for the first time. A total of 25 stranded dolphins and whales were examined between 2001 and 2009, including stripedExpand

A Revision of the Lung-Worms of Cetacea
TLDR
Nematode worms inhabiting the air-passages and blood-vessels of whales, porpoises and dolphins form a group analogous, and, as it is believed, very closely related to the genera Metastrongylus, Dictyocaulus, Synthetocaulous, and Haemostrongolus, which occur in similar situations in terrestrial mammals.
