Precocious development of hydatid cysts in a macropodid host
This study describes the pathological changes associated with an experimental infection of captive wallabies with Echinococcus granulosus. Adult and juvenile tammar wallabies (Macropus eugenii) were infected orally with 0, 1,000, 2,500 or 8,000 E. granulosus eggs. Lung cyst progression was monitored by chest radiography every 4 months until 16 months p.i. Animals were necropsied from 9 to 16 months after infection. Cysts were detected radiographically from 4 months onwards. The number of cysts...[Show more]
