Abstract

Cross-sections of nematodes were seen in histologic sections of trachea from a raccoon (Procyon lotor) collected in Virginia (USA); they occupied epithelium and contained unembryonated, bioperculated eggs characteristic of the genus Capillaria (= Eucoleus). A mild inflammatory cell infiltrate in the lamina propria subjacent to the nematode was the only apparent host response. This is the first report of capillariasis in the trachea of raccoons.
