HAEMORRHAGIC ENTERITIS OF TURKEYS

Fig. 1. Haemorrhagic desquamative
catarrh of the mucosa in a 10-weekold
turkey. H/E, Bar = 50 µm.

Fig. 2. A characteristic diagnostic
finding is the detection of large, acidophilic,
rarely basophilic intranuclear
inclusion bodies in the reticuloendothelial
cells of the spleen (arrows).
The displaced condensed nuclear
chromatin around the inclusion bodies
often resembles a crescent. H/E,
Bar = 10 µm.

Fig. 3. Sometimes, similar inclusion
bodies could be detected in the lamina
propria of the intestinal mucosa
(arrows). H/E, Bar = 10 µm.

Fig. 4. In the spleen, hyperplasia of
the white pulp, necroses, subcapsular
and periarteriolar haemorrhages
could be generally observed, consequently
to a secondary E. coli septicaemia.

smears exhibit the typical picture of a
