Abstract : Mucoid bronchial impaction similar to that occasionally seen in man was diagnosed in a Wire Fox Terrier at necropsy. The primary lesion was multistage lobular pneumonia involving most of the lung. Many of the larger bronchi were obstructed with an odorless, granular, mildly adhesive, gray-green mucoid mass. Subsequent histologic examination of the areas below the blocked and dilated bronchi revealed cystic bronchiectasis, with mucous acinar and goblet cell hyperplasia and diffuse interstitial pneumonitis.
