Image SIS package Myxomatosis skin lesion
Myxomatosis does not only affect the eyelids, nares and genitalia. It can cause circular crusting lesions anywhere on the body. In vaccinated or other rabbits with partial immunity, there may be solitary or multiple lesions that do not seem to worry the rabbit. This lesion is on the ear. Over a course of 4-8 weeks, these 'atypical' myxomatosis lesions will dry out and fall off. The main differential diagnoses are ringworm, a crusting skin tumour such as a melanoma, an injection reaction or an infected bite wound.

Image SIS package Recovering from myxomatosis
Recovery from myxomatosis, especially in unvaccinated rabbits, is not impossible. This rabbit survived an outbreak that killed her companion and four youngsters. The image is taken just after the crusting lesions had fallen away and the skin was healing.

Image SIS package Atypical myxomatosis
Crusting circular skin lesions can occur without systemic signs in some rabbits, especially vaccinated ones. This syndrome may called 'atypical myxomatosis' and is probably due to mild infection in rabbits with partial immunity. The lesions are typical of rabbits that recover from myxomatosis. They eventually crust over and drop off. The rabbit shown in this picture made a full recovery. She was vaccinated but exposed to myxomatosis during a severe outbreak in neighbouring wild rabbits.

Image SIS package Myxomatosis swollen eyelids
Thickened eyelids are the first sign of myxomatosis although there may be a nodular skin lesion at the site of initial inoculation somewhere else on the body. The eyelids continue to become thickened, inflamed and infected over the next few days before nodular lesions develop especially on the eyelids, nasal planum, face, base of the pinnae and genitalia.

Image Severe myxomatosis
This rabbit had been adopted by her new owners a few weeks previously. During the pre-anaesthetic check prior to neutering, it became evident that there were wild rabbits with myxomatosis near her new home. She was vaccinated against myxomatosis and RHD immediately and spayed the next day. Unfortunately she developed signs of severe myxomatosis despite vaccination. It is possible that she didn't respond to the vaccination because the was either incubating the disease or the stress of neutering interfered with her immune response.

Image Myxomatosis nodular eye lesions
This image shows the nodular appearance of the eyelid lesions in advanced cases of myxomatosis. In this case, the crusts that were covering the nodules had fallen off . Eventually the nodules regressed and the rabbit recovered.
