Transmissible Ileal Hyperplasia, Hamster

  • Chapter

Part of the Monographs on Pathology of Laboratory Animals book series (LABORATORY)

Abstract

The most striking lesion of transmissible ileal hyperplasia is progressive thickening of the small intestine (Jacoby 1978). This lesion typically affects the distal ileum (Figs. 326, 327), but may develop occasionally in proximal segments of the small intestine or in the proximal colon. The lesion is usually well demarcated and the transition from thickened to normal intestine is especially abrupt at the ileocecal junction. The cecum is often flaccid and filled with fetid liquid contents. Terminally ill hamsters are usually dehydrated and their perianal skin may be wet or matted with liquid feces, a sign for which the term “wet-tail” is commonly used.

Synonyms

  • Proliferative ileitis
  • hamster enteritis
  • hamster ileitis
  • regional ileitis
  • terminal ileitis
  • enzootic intestinal adenocarcinoma
  • wet-tail
