Fernández-Loras, A., Ferreira, B., Fernández-Fernández, F. & Rosa, G.M. (2016) Ophthalmological lesion in a wild individual of Mountain chicken frog (Leptodactylus fallax). Archives of Veterinary Science, 21(4), 107-114.
In spite of the amount of anatomical studies that have been made regardingthe amphibian eye, relatively little has been written about clinical manifestations or diseases affecting the eye of members of this animal Class.Moreover, the majority of research has focused on ocular diseases or lesions of amphibians kept in captivity. We report on a wild Mountain chicken frog (Leptodactylus fallax), a critically endangered species, with alesion in the left eye. Additionally, we developed a list ofpossible differential diagnosis for the ophthalmic lesion.We intend to bridge the available knowledge on this topic and understand the problems affecting wild free ranging individuals.
