The article reports a case of myocardial inflammation which was due to Clostridium chauvoei in a female scimitar-horned oryx from a zoo collection that was found dead for two weeks. It states that clostridial myocarditis was the diagnosis based on the sudden death history, gross and histopathological findings and the manifestation of C chauvoie in the wounds using the Fluorescent antibody tests (FATs). It is significant to avoid the contamination of samples with the alimentary tract contents.
