A virus was isolated from the liver and stomach of a leaf-tailed gecko (Uroplatus fimbriatus) with granulomatous lesions on the tongue and hepatitis. The virus was identified as an iridovirus on the basis of morphology by electron microscopy, restriction endonuclease assay, and sequencing of a large portion of the major capsid protein gene. Comparative analysis revealed that this isolate is related to frog virus 3, the type species of the genus Ranavirus.
