Abstract

The authors describe serofibrinous tracheitis resulting in the obstipation of the windpipe of an adult Amur ratsnake (Elaphe schrenki), coupled with proliferation and desquamation of the epithel cells lining the trachea. Bacterial test results of samples taken from the windpipe and the lungs proved to be negative. Electronmicroscopic investigation of the fibrine plug blocking the trachea showed a virus particles morphology characteristic to coronaviruses, whereas RT-PCR did not reveal the presence of a paramyxo-, IBV, toro- or coronavirus. Virus particles observed by electronmicroscopy had a morphology similar to coronaviruses {Figure 3). Even though RT-PCR test results were negative (perhaps due to the fact that consensus coronavirus primers are unsuitable for demonstrating coronaviruses in reptiles), it is speculated that the pathology identified by the authors (Figure 1 and 2) was caused by a virus similar to coronaviruses in its size and morphology.
