Abstract: Background An adult male Brachyteles arachanoides, kept in captivity since 1990, was found dead without apparent clinical evidence. Methods Necropsy report, histopathology, immunohistochemistry, and ultrastructural examination were conducted. Results Pulmonary syncytial cells were positive for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and ultrastructural examination revealed viral particles inside macrophages compatible with the Paramyxoviridae family. Conclusions Muriquis are susceptible to RSV pneumonia followed by respiratory distress syndrome and death.
