Signalment:Adult female house sparrow
History:This sparrow was part of a small, wild-caught research colony. It and another male sparrow in a separate cage were found dead within 12 hours of one another with no previous clinical signs reported.
Gross Lesions:Multifocally throughout the serosal surface of the jejunum were small aggregates of fibrin and the jejunal and colonic walls were expanded by a moderate amount of edema, consistent with a fibrinous coelomitis and potentially an enteritis. A section of liver is on the submitted slide.
