sulawesi tortoise adenovirus-1 in two impressed tortoises (manouria impressa) and a burmese star tortoise (geochelone platynota).sulawesi tortoise adenovirus-1 (stadv-1) is a newly discovered virus infecting endangered and threatened tortoises. it was initially described from a confiscated group of 105 sulawesi tortoises (indotestudo forsteni) obtained by the turtle survival alliance and distributed to five sites with available veterinary care across the united states. in a 3-yr period from the initial outbreak, one multi-species collection that rehabilitated and housed adenovirus-infected sulawesi tortoises experienced d ...201223082513
antemortem diagnosis and characterization of nasal intranuclear coccidiosis in sulawesi tortoises (indotestudo forsteni).intranuclear coccidia and mycoplasma spp. were identified from the nasal cavity of 5 sulawesi tortoises (indotestudo forsteni) affected by chronic rhinosinusitis and oronasal fistulae. this study provides the first antemortem diagnosis of intranuclear coccidiosis in tortoises and the first cytomorphologic descriptions of this disease. histopathologic and ultrastructural morphology of the intranuclear coccidia were identical to those previously described in tortoises. nucleic acid sequence data o ...200717998554
systemic adenovirus infection in sulawesi tortoises (indotestudo forsteni) caused by a novel siadenovirus.a novel siadenovirus was identified in the sulawesi tortoise (indotestudo forsteni). a group of 105 sulawesi tortoises was obtained by the turtle survival alliance. many of the tortoises were in poor health. clinical signs included anorexia, lethargy, mucosal ulcerations and palatine erosions of the oral cavity, nasal and ocular discharge, and diarrhea. initial diagnostic tests included fecal testing for parasites, complete blood count and plasma biochemical analysis, mycoplasma serology, and po ...200919564489
intranuclear coccidiosis in tortoises: nine cases.chelonian intranuclear coccidiosis has been reported once, in two radiated tortoises (geochelone radiata), and is apparently rare. we describe intranuclear coccidiosis diagnosed histologically in two radiated tortoises, three travancore tortoises (indotestudo forstenii), two leopard tortoises (geochelone pardalis), one bowsprit tortoise (chersina angulata), and one impressed tortoise (manouria impressa). infection was systemic and involved alimentary, urogenital, respiratory, lymphoid, endocrine ...200616672578
a tortoise-infecting picornavirus expands the host range of the family picornaviridae.while picornaviruses can cause diseases in many mammals, little is known of their host range for replication in non-mammalian vertebrates. here, a picornavirus in liver and kidney tissues from diseased sulawesi tortoises (indotestudo forsteni) was genetically characterized. tortoise rafivirus a (torav-a, kj415177) represents a potential new genus in the family picornaviridae, for which we propose the name "rafivirus". our finding confirms the susceptibility of reptiles to picornaviruses.201525721297
case report of systemic coccidiosis in a radiated tortoise (geochelone radiata).more than 30 species of coccidian parasites have been described in chelonidae (tortoises and turtles). eimeria spp. are apparently the most common coccidia in chelonians. findings of caryospora cheloniae, isospora sp., and mantonella sp. have also been published, but reports about systemic coccidiosis are rare. we describe a case of a coccidiosis diagnosed cytologically in a radiated tortoise (geochelone radiata) which was captive-bred in germany. infection was systemic and involved the lymphoid ...200817994300
