Degeneration and necrosis of Purkinje fibers with fibrosis around Purkinje fibers were found in the hearts of three adult black rhinoceroses (Diceros bicornis) in Zimbabwe in 1989 and 1990, among 38 animals examined from 1988 to 1994. Causes of death were not apparently related to these changes, nor was there evidence of heart failure. The etiology of these changes is unknown.
