Signalment:11-year-old male intact llama
History:A 11-year-old intact male llama presented with diarrhea, inability to rise, and heavy gastrointestinal parasitism.
Gross Lesions:Severe fibrinosuppurative peritonitis presented with adhesion of intestinal loops to each other and the mesentery. A string of mesenteric lymph nodes of the jejunum was markedly enlarged and contained purulent material when cut. The jejunum had a single transmural perforation approximately 5 cm in diameter. The extensive necrosis of the surrounding jejunal wall was continuous with multifocal areas of ulceration on the mucosal surface. Smaller foci of ulceration were present in the adjacent, hyperemic mucosa of the small intestine over a ~ 15 cm long segment. The liver had myriad disseminated foci. Most foci were grey and pin-point to 1 mm in diameter and flat; fewer foci dark red brown, depressed and 2-4 mm in diameter; occasional foci pale tan, protruding and up to 3 mm in diameter.
