Abstract

Clinical skin disease in the NHP is common and generally similar in appearance, clinical approach, and therapy to that seen in other animals and humans. Because most skin diseases of NHP are potentially zoonotic, care must be taken when handling the animals. Traumatic injury to the skin with secondary bacterial infection is the most common condition seen clinically. Virus-induced skin disease is probably the next most commonly seen, followed by mycotic infections, parasitisms, cancer, and miscellaneous rare conditions.
