canine distemper virus infection in a masked palm civet (paguma larvata).a free-living masked palm civet (paguma larvata) died after exhibiting signs of canine distemper (cd). the microscopic lesions consisted of cytoplasmic and intranuclear eosinophilic inclusion bodies, bronchointerstitial pneumonia, non-purulent encephalitis accompanied by demyelination and lymphocytic depletion in various lymphoid tissues. cd virus-specific antigens were demonstrated immunohistochemically in intracellular eosinophilic inclusions, which were ultrastructurally confirmed to be viral ...19921291591
pathology and epidemiology of canine distemper in raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides).from september to december 1991, a large number of free-ranging raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides) died from a highly contagious disease in the vicinity of tokyo. eighteen seriously ill or dead animals were submitted for necropsy. the pathological findings resembled those in a masked palm civet (paguma larvata) found infected with canine distemper virus (cdv) in the same area in late august 1991. the most striking features were pneumonia and gastroenteritis. microscopical lesions consisted ...19938366205
pathological and phylogenetic features of prevalent canine distemper viruses in wild masked palm civets in japan.ten wild masked palm civets infected with canine distemper virus (cdv), captured in japan from 2005 to 2007, were histopathologically and phylogenetically analyzed. phylogenetic analysis based on the amino acid sequences of the h protein of two cdv isolates from masked palm civets revealed that the two isolates were classified into the clade of recent isolates in japan. histopathologically marked lesions of virus encephalitis were present in the brain, whereas gastrointestinal lesions were absen ...200918774607
pathologic and molecular virologic characterization of a canine distemper outbreak in farmed october 2011, a fatal disease outbreak occurred in 3 civet species farmed for their use in the coffee industry in thailand. the disease quickly killed 20 animals in a mixed population of asian palm civets (paradoxurus hermaphroditus; n = 18), a masked palm civet (paguma larvata; n = 1), and small indian civet (viverricula indica; n = 1). clinical signs consisted of severe lethargy, weakness, vomiting, and diarrhea with associated dehydration, dyspnea, nasal and footpad hyperkeratosis, and sei ...201525253065
