Abstract

Two Galapagos doves were received for necropsy. The only lesions detected were small firm foci throughout the lungs, suspected to be neoplastic. Sections of lung tissues showed the foci as dense, solid masses of epithelioid cells. Electron microscopy revealed pox virions in the lesions. This is the first report on Galapagos doves with poxvirus infection in the lungs with tumour-like growth.
