    ABSTRACT: Over a 15-yr time span, a 30-yr-old female chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) exhibited recurrent upper respiratory disease that was suspected to be allergen induced. Until 1993, symptomatic therapy with several different antibiotics and antihistamines yielded variable results. In early 1993, the chimpanzee was consistently observed to be open-mouth breathing despite medication. Nasal polyposis was diagnosed using rigid endoscopy in September 1993, and the polyps were removed by loop excision. A fluorescent allergosorbent test was performed to differentiate hypersensitivity to specific regional allergens causing chronic inhalant allergic rhinitis. Oral immunotherapy was then instituted using standard human treatment for Sacramento Valley pollens. This combination of polyp removal and immunotherapy resulted in a marked reduction of clinical signs, and continuous oral immunotherapy has controlled these signs. Hyposensitization therapy will continue for at least 2-3 yr. The chimpanzee continues to breath normally following occasional antihistamine treatment.

    ABSTRACT: Rostral and caudal rhinoscopy in dogs and cats facilitates the investigation of the nasal cavity and accurate biopsy. Rostral rhinoscopy can be performed by rigid endoscopes; caudal rhinoscopy requires flexible endoscopes. Deep anaesthesia or additional analgesia with local anaesthesia is necessary. The nasal cavity is assessed by its form, colour, surface of the mucous membrane, hyperemia, plaques, lesions, and the secretion is assessed by its quantity, colour and viscosity. Foreign bodies and neoplasia must also be looked for. Case reports with abnormal findings are described.

    ABSTRACT: Gastrointestinal endoscopy has proved to be an important tool in the diagnosis of gastrointestinal disease in the dog. An endoscope for the examination of oesophagus, stomach, and colon is described. Examination of the duodenum is also possible with this type of endoscope in the larger breeds of dogs. Indications, advantages, and disadvantages of the endoscopy are pointed out.
