Radiological signs of strongylosis in Tammar wallabies






Australian Veterinary Journal 64(3): 86-87

Radiological signs of strongylosis in Tammar wallabies

Abdominal radiographs taken several days after feeding barium meals to Tammar wallabies (Macropus eugenii) sometimes showed a disk-shaped patch where contrast agent had been retained. These coarsely granular, heterogeneous patches were found in 3 of 10 wallabies. Inspection of the early radiographs of the barium series revealed that the patches were initially represented as radiolucent space-occupying lesions on the floor of the blind sac of the stomach. PM examination showed that the lesions corresponded to tuberous projections from the gastric wall composed of necrotic propria intermingled with large numbers of 3rd-stage strongyle larval, later identified as Labiostrongylus sp. The retention of barium by the lesion is discussed.
