Pseudocapillaroides xenopi Infection

 

The roundworm Pseudocapillaroides xenopi is parasite from the Capillariidae family that causes skin complications such as sloughing and irritation in amphibians. The parasitic infection is not fatal in and of itself, but can lower the amphibian's immunity and make it more susceptible to secondary infections, which can often be fatal.
