Abstract

The light microscopic demonstration of eosinophilic intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies in epithelial cells and the electron microscopic demonstration of poxvirus in these inclusions has shown that sealpox occurs in free-living California sea lions, Zalophus calijornianus. This is the first evidence of a poxvirus skin infection in free-living California sea lions.
