Virus isolated from lung tissue in cell culture was suspected to be Herpesvirus papio 2 (HVP2), Urolithiasis and Transitional Cell Carcinoma of the Bladder in a Wistar Rat. Vol 45, No 4 July 2006. The bladder was fi lled with 28 white, round to oval calculi of
various sizes. The kidney presented a single unevenly shaped calculus in the pelvis. Histology revealed, in addition to urolithiasis, a grade II papillary transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder, with muscle invasion and neoplastic extension to the left renal pelvic epithelium.

March 2006. fibrogranulomatous material effacing the skeletal muscle and vertebral bone, with marked bone lysis and infiltration into the marrow space and spinal canal. In addition, multiple granulomas in the pulmonary parenchyma were noted. (injection site granuloma). Spontaneous Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma in a Sooty Mangabey Cercocebus atys): A Case Report. Vol 45, No 2 March 2006. tumor was composed of irregular masses and cords of neoplastic

squamous epithelial cells that invaded the dermis and subcutis, often undergoing keratinization and forming numerous keratin pearls. First spontaneous SCC in sootey mangaby.
Primary Amenorrhea Associated with Ovarian Leiomyoma in a Baboon (Papio hamadryas). Vol 45, No 3 May 2006. absence of menstrual cycling and secondary sex characteristics and failure to reproduce. The mammary glands and vaginal introitus were hypoplastic, the clitoris was prominent, and the perineal skin was immature with lack of cyclic color alterations and sexual swelling. Evaluation of the reproductive tract revealed a hypoplastic uterus and rudimentary ovaries with the presence of an ovarian leiomyoma within the right ovary. suggest primary amenorrhea due to ovarian dysgenesis.

Toxic Shock due to Streptococcus pyogenes in a Rhesus Monkey (Macaca mulatta). Vol 45, No 5 September 2006. Group A streptococci includes Streptococcus pyogenes, causes suppurative pharyngitis, nonsuppurative infections with sequelae, such as rheumatoid fever and rheumatic heart disease. S. pyogenes produces several superantigen-like erythrogenic toxins, which are believed to be associated with pyrogenicity, erythromatous skin reactions, and various immunologic and cytotoxic effects. These toxins also can cause myocardial necrosis. This isolate also had a unique M protein gene. 2007
