Inclusion body disease (IBD) is one of the most important contagious diseases of captive snakes belonging to the Boidae and Pythonidae family. The most characteristic features of IBD are the eosinophil or amphophil inclusion bodies detected during histological examinations in the cytoplasm of neurons and glial cells of the central nervous system and in epithelial cells of internal organs. Although the disease was known from the 1970's, its etiological agents, the snake arenaviruses related to mammalian arenaviruses and filoviruses have only been identified recently.
