Imura K, Chambers JK, Uchida K, Nomura S, Suzuki S, Nakayama H, Miwa Y - J. Vet. Med. Sci. (2014)

Bottom Line: Immunohistochemical examination using anti-herpes simplex virus type 1 antibody revealed virus antigens in both cases.Both animals had been kept as pets with limited exposure to the ambient environment except via their owners.Therefore, herpes simplex virus type-1 was probably acquired from close contact with their owners.

ABSTRACT
An 8-month-old common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) was presented with tic-like symptoms, and a 2-year-old pigmy marmoset (Callithrix pygmaea) was presented with dyspnea and hypersalivation. Both monkeys died within a few days, and necropsies were performed. Histopathological examinations revealed ulcerative stomatitis with epithelial cell swelling and eosinophilic intranuclear inclusion bodies in the oral epithelium of both cases. In the central and peripheral nervous systems, neuronal cell degeneration with intranuclear inclusion bodies was observed. Immunohistochemical examination using anti-herpes simplex virus type 1 antibody revealed virus antigens in both cases. Both animals had been kept as pets with limited exposure to the ambient environment except via their owners. Therefore, herpes simplex virus type-1 was probably acquired from close contact with their owners.
