Abstract

An acutely dead 9-day-old calf showed irregular shaped necrotic foci in the ruminal mucosa, subcapsular hepatic abscesses from rice-grain to red bean in size and enlarged mesenteric lymph nodes at autopsy. Histopathology revealed infiltration of neutrophils and fibrinous thrombi in ruminal ulcers as well as abscesses and fibrinous thrombi in the liver. The ruminal ulcer and hepatic abscesses were strongly positive by immunostain for Fusobacterium necrophorum antigen.
