Abstract

A 79,XXX chromosome complement was detected in a four-year-old Airedale Terrier bitch examined for primary anestrus. Serum concentrations of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) were markedly elevated. Ovaries contained solid epithelial cords and large masses of interstitial cells but lacked follicles and corpora lutea. Somatic abnormalities were not observed. X trisomy is reviewed in six species in which it has been described.
