GARDNER, B R  y  BARROWS, M G. Yolk coelomitis in a white-throated monitor lizard (Varanus albigularis). J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2010, vol.81, n.2, pp.121-122. ISSN 2224-9435.

Yolk coelomitis as a result of pre-ovulatory follicular stasis is a common disorder in captive reptiles, especially in captive lizards of various genera. The clinical signs are generally fairly non-specific and diagnosis is based on clinical signs together with most of the common diagnostic modalities. The condition is most likely a husbandry and environment-related reproductive disorder. It has not been reported in wild free-living specimens. This report describes the clinical presentation and post mortem lesions in a white-throated monitor lizard that died during treatment for non-specific clinical signs related to a severe yolk coelomitis.

Palabras clave : constipation; follicular stasis; white-throated monitor lizard; Varanus albigularis; yolk coelomitis.
