Abstract

We report a case of granulomatous peritonitis due to Baylisascaris transfuga in a young male European brown bear (Ursus arctus). At necropsy, there were extensive abdominal adhesions and extensive granulomatous tissue on the peritoneum and liver capsule. In the gastrointestinal tract, there were 58 nematodes that were identified as Baylisascaris transfuga using light and scanning electron microscopy.
