Aleutian mink disease

a slow progressive disease of mink caused by the aleutian mink disease virus. It is characterised by poor reproduction, weight loss, autoimmunity, hypergammaglobulinaemia, increased susceptibility to bacterial infections, and death from renal failure. The disease occurs in all colour types, but mink which are homozygous recessive for the aleutian gene for light coat colour are particularly susceptible.
