Sažetak
Lungworm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus is a cats lung parasite with an indirect life cycle. Its predmoninant sites are terminal bronchioles and alveolar ducts. In the study, two populations of cats were examined. The first group consisted of feral cats (N=50) in the rural areas of the County of Zagorje (northwest Croatia), while the second group included cats from the urban area of the city of Zagreb. For the second group, data were collected from foecal examination (N=529) from the Department of Parasitology and the gross and histopathological findings of cats lungs (N=128) at the Department of General Pathology and Pathological Morphology of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Zagreb. In the first group, histopathological examination was carried out and the parasite was diagnosed in 22% (N=11) ; in the second group the parasite was diagnosed un 0.38% (N=2) of the faecal examination in the eight year period (1990-1998) and 3.9 % (N=5) on histopathological examination of cats lungs, also in the same period. Histopathological examination showed alveoli, bronchiole, and alveolar ducts filled with eggs and larvae of Ae. abstrusus, disruption of alveolar septa, cellular infiltrate (mostly eosinophils, macrophages, lymphocytes and few multinucleated giant cells), peribronhiall cell infiltration, and a striking hyperplasia and hypertrophy of smooth muscle, i.e. medial layer of the pulmonic arteries.
