Abstract

During the second morbillivirus epidemic (2007 to 2011) in cetaceans along the Italian coastline, dolphin morbillivirus (DMV) was detected by molecular analyses in a captive harbor seal (Phoca vitulina), with pathological findings consistent with morbilli- virus infection. This report confirms interspecies DMV transmission from cetaceans to pinnipeds.
