  Burkholderia cepacia and Aeromonas hydrophila infections are described in an African Grey Parrot (Psittacus erithacus erithacus) that presented with neurological signs, lassitude, and respiratory distress. At postmortem examination, subperiosteal ecchymotic hemorrhages in the skull, and severe subcutaneous edema in the neck and abdomen were prominent. Round, disseminated, whitish necrotic foci were noted in the congested liver. Microscopic examination revealed chromatolysis in brain neurons. Multifocal coagulation necroses were found in the liver. Non-purulent, subacute myocarditis, thromboembolic nephritis, and interstitial pneumonia were observed. Microbiological examination revealed mixed cultures of Burkholderia cepacia and Aeromonas hydrophila in brain, lung, liver, kidney, and heart samples.

  Fatal pulmonary aspergillosis and AA type amyloid accumulations in the liver and spleen are described in a female ostrich (Struthio camelus). The animal had had respiratory problems and long-term inappetence over an 8-week period. Necropsy revealed that several soft, grayish to white nodules ranging from 1 to 3 mm in diameter were scattered throughout the lungs and thoracic air sacs. Prominent enlargement of the liver and spleen was observed. No gross lesions were found in the other organs studied. The microscopic examination showed severe, necrotizing, granulomatous pneumonia, and air sacculitis. Aspergillus fumigatus was recovered from the lungs and air sacs as pure culture colonies. Amyloid deposition was demonstrated in the liver and spleen slides by Congo red and immunohistochemistry. To the authors’ knowledge, to date no case of amyloid accumulation in ostrich has been reported. We report, for the first time, diffuse AA amyloidosis in the liver and spleen of an ostrich, probably occurring secondary to aspergillosis.

  In the present study, an ileal leiomyoma encountered in a captive zebra ((Equus burchelli) was reported. A 29-year-old, female zebra was found dead in the Bursa zoo. According to the referring veterinarian the most prominent clinical signs were intermittent colic (responsive to analgesics) and constipation. At post mortem examination, abdomen was severely distended. A firm, multilobular, well vascularized and encapsulated tumoural mass, 12 cm in diameter, embedded into the proximal part of the ileum wall, and protruded from the serosal surface was found. The cut section of the mass had whorled appearance, pale yellow to white in colour, and had no sign of coagulation necroses and haemorrhages. In the microscopical examination, it was observed that tumoural mass consisted of interlacing bundles of well-differentiated, haphazardly arranged, and smooth muscle cells. Mitotic figures were not common. Immunohistochemically, neoplastic cells were stained strongly with alpha smooth muscle actin and the mass was diagnosed as leiomyoma.
