What is your diagnosis? (67)


In this case we did not receive samples, so a laboratorial confirmation was not possible but the images are compatible with Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae lesions. Some strains of this bacterium cause this type of multifocal lesions, the raised areas correspond to the areas lesioned by the bacterium and consist of necrotic-haemorrhagic pneumonia. The pleura is usually also involved (pleuritis).
