Zwei Fallberichte einer disseminierten Toxoplasmose. Stief B., Kiesow C., Ellenberger C. Landesuntersuchungsanstalt Sachsen, Standort Dresden, Fachgebiet Pathologie/Bakteriologie, Jagerstrasse 8/10, 01099 Dresden. email@example.com Two cases of disseminated fatal toxoplasmosis of a pet mouse and a red panda are described. The pet mouse had a private owner; the red panda lived in a zoological garden in Saxony. At necropsy, both animals suffered from a systemic toxoplasmosis. A severe necrotizing hepatitis was the main histological feature in both animals. Parasitic cysts could be abundantly found in the liver, moderately in the brain and in a low number in other organs. With the PAS-reaction, cysts showed a weak staining in the mouse and a strong staining in the red panda. Diagnosis was confirmed by PCR and immunohistochemistry.
