Abstract:An outbreak of pneumonia among tree shrews occurred in an animal laboratory during 2003 April to August. The epidemic was characterized by acute, respiratory distress, contagious only in neonatal or young animals with high mortality rate, but roxithromycin was remarkably effective in stopping this epidemic. The histological appearance was simple interstitial pneumonia without any intra-alveolar exudates. Mycoplaxma pneumoniae was suspected to be the causative agent.
