Lipoid pneumonia in an orangutan (Pongo abelii) with chronic respiratory problems


Novacco, Marilisa; Hofmann-Lehmann, Regina; Hetzel, Udo; Hatt, Jean-Michel; Ohlerth, Stefanie; Stirn, Martina (2019). Lipoid pneumonia in an orangutan (Pongo abelii) with chronic respiratory problems. Journal of Medical Primatology, 48(2):133-136.

Abstract

An orangutan (Pongo abelii) presented with chronic respiratory problems. Cytological evaluation of the bronchoalveolar lavage fluids revealed macrophages with well-circumscribed intracytoplasmic clear vacuoles and lipid droplets in the background, confirmed by Oil Red O staining. The findings were indicative of lipoid pneumonia. This is the first report of lipoid pneumonia in an orangutan.
