Problem-oriented reptile medicine is an explicit, definable process focused on the identification and resolution of a patient's problems. This approach includes gathering case information, clearly defining the problems, making plans to address each problem, and following up with the case over time. Case information and published literature serve as evidence to support clinical decisions and pathophysiological rationale. This article describes the problem-solving process used to diagnose and treat a green iguana (Iguana iguana) that presents with ovostasis.
