in vitro responses of cheetah mononuclear cells to feline herpesvirus-1 and cryptococcus vitro t cell function by domestic cats and cheetahs to two common pathogens, feline herpesvirus-1 (fhv-1) and cryptococcus neoformans, was assessed. peripheral blood mononuclear cells (pbm) were stimulated with two strains of uv-inactivated fhv-1, whole heat-killed organisms or capsular antigen of cryptococcus neoformans, and proliferative responses measured. as a group, cheetah pbm responded significantly poorer than domestic cat pbm when cultured with fhv-1. however, individual cheetah resp ...19921317618
pulmonary cryptococcoma and cryptococcal meningoencephalomyelitis in a king cheetah (acinonyx jubatus).a captive king cheetah (acinonyx jubatus) was evaluated for a subacute onset of ataxia in all four limbs. the ataxia appeared to be spinal in origin, evidenced by apparent conscious proprioceptive deficits in all limbs, and there was no evidence of cerebellar involvement. anesthesia was performed and survey spinal radiographs were normal. cerebrospinal fluid analysis revealed an apparently sterile meningitis of unknown etiology. although transient improvement was noted with glucocorticoid and an ...19979523645
cryptococcosis in captive cheetah (acinonyx jubatus): two cases.cryptococcus neoformans is a yeast-like organism associated with pulmonary, meningoencephalitic, or systemic disease. this case report documents 2 cases of cryptococcosis with central nervous system involvement in captive cheetah (acinonyx jubatus). in both cases the predominant post mortal lesions were pulmonary cryptococcomas and extensive meningoencephalomyelitis. both cheetahs tested negative for feline immunodeficiency virus and feline leukaemia virus. the organism isolated in case 2 was cl ...199910855821
cryptococcus neoformans granuloma in the lung and spinal cord of a free-ranging cheetah (acinonyx jubatus). a clinical report and literature review.a 6-year-old, male, wild-born, free-ranging cheetah (acinonyx jubatus) was evaluated for acute onset of progressive lameness in the right hind limb. survey radiographs were unrewarding and myelography indicated an intramedullary compressive mass at the l3-l4 region. a fine needle aspirate of the lesion indicated the presence of cryptococcus organisms. necropsy confirmed the presence of granulomas (cryptococcoma) in the lung and the spinal cord (meningomyelitis) caused by cryptococcus neoformans ...200516642721
