During one year 23 of 110 New Zealand white, adult male laboratory rabbits died. The pathological findings included intestinal stasis, intestinal blockage, acute intestinal rupture and intestinal rupture with peritonitis. These changes were considered to represent stages in an intestinal stasis and rupture syndrome. Another group of 20 comparable rabbits remained unaffected.
