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 object code Myxomatosis advanced
This image shows Rio 4 weeks after the reddening of his eyelids was first noted. He was starting with urine scalding on his legs because he would dribble some urine because of the lesions on his genitalia, He couldn't eat his caecotrophs so his anus needed to be cleaned. His genitalia, nose and eyes were sore and he struggled to breathe. He still wanted to eat but could not pick up food on his own. He seemed to be more comfortable on his back and could be hand fed with his favourite foods (fresh greens) in that position. He was starting to lose weight rapidly. The decision to euthanase him was made on the following day. His companion remained well throughout Rio's illness despite developing a circular crusting lesion at the base of her ear.

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.
