SOME INTERESTING PATHOLOGICAL CASES IN AMPHIBIANS

Authors


Abstract

Published literature on amphibian pathology is extremely sparse and our knowledge of the amphibian reaction to the factors commonly causing disease in these animals is as yet very incomplete. Apart from accidents, not included in this survey, the main causes of morbidity in amphibians are parasites, tumours, inflammatory conditions and fungal infestation.

Presented here are twenty-three case histories of amphibians either freshly caught and found to be diseased or falling ill while being kept in captivity.
