Abstract

A 37-yr-old chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) died due to bacterial meningoencephalomyelitis. At necropsy, a mass was observed in the fundus of the gallbladder. Histopathologic examination resulted in a diagnosis of adenoma, the first diagnosis of a primary spontaneous neoplasm in the gallbladder of a non-human primate.
