Abstract

LIMA, F.C.; ABREU, M.G.  and  MESQUITA, E.F.M.. Histopathological monitoring assessment of mussels Perna perna at the Itaipu Lagoon, Brazil. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2001, vol.53, n.2, pp.1-5. ISSN 0102-0935.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-09352001000200013.

Histologic sections of 120 mussels Perna perna (Linnaeus, 1758), from Itaipu Lagoon, Niterói, State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, were examined for the presence of parasites and lesions during a period of 12 months. Ninety mussels showed five different pathological processes: bucephalosis, protozoan Nematopsis sp., basophilic non-specific inclusions, parasitic encapsulations and ctenidia epithelial cysts. Fifty animals presented two or more pathological processes at the same time.

Keywords : Mussel; Perna perna; bivalve; parasite; histopathology.
