Treatment regimen for air sacculitis in the chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes).

Abstract

Six champanzees (Pan troglodytes) developed air sacculitis. Except for air sac distension and malodorous breath, clinical signs were rare. A variety of organisms, mainly enteric, were isolated from the air sacs. Only one case was treated surgically. Other cases were treated by the conservative method of irrigation which worked well.
