Objective: Diagnosis and therapy of infertility in a Diana monkey. Material and methods: Clinical case report of an endometrial polyp in a Diana monkey. Results: The animal had been kept in a zoo with a male for two years but was never receptive to the male. During this period, recurrent bleeding from the vagina with varying degree had been observed. A clinical examination together with ultrasonography of the abdomen led to suggest the existence of a uterine neoplasia. After ovarhysterectomy a polyp of the endometrium with a size of 17 x 13 x 10mm was found. This benign tumor most probably caused the recurrent bleeding from the vagina. After surgery the animal recovered completely. Conclusion: This is the first report on diagnosis and therapy of a spontaneous endometrial polyp in a nonhuman primate. Clinical relevance: Case history, clinical examination and ultrasonography were successful to discover the cause of a recurrent bleeding from the vagina in a Diana monkey.
