The article discusses the case of an Asian palm civet in Hungary which was infected with the feline panleukopenia virus (FPV). The civet has shown clinical signs of lethargy, diarrhea and vomiting. It observed pathological changes suggestive of a parvovirus infection. Results have shown that there is a shortening of the intestinal villi and focal necrosis of the mucous membrane in the civet's small intestine. It is found that the civet was infected with FPV.
