Tubercular Lesions in Two Spanish Cyprinodontid fishes

Tubercular Lesions in Two Spanish Cyprinodontid fishes A histopathological study of tubercular lesions in Lebias (=Aphanius) ibera and Valencia hispanica (Cyprinodontidae) was carried out using conventional acid-fast staining and immunohistochemical methods. The clinical signs in diseased fish comprised exophthalmos, emaciation and melanosis. Examination of stained sections revealed a systemic granulomatous process associated with positive Zielh–Neelsen bacilli in the lesions. The immunohistochemical staining was positive in all cases and the mycobacterial antigen was detected in affected organs. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aquarium Sciences and Conservation Springer Journals

Abstract

A histopathological study of tubercular lesions in Lebias (=Aphanius) ibera and Valencia hispanica (Cyprinodontidae) was carried out using conventional acid-fast staining and immunohistochemical methods. The clinical signs in diseased fish comprised exophthalmos, emaciation and melanosis. Examination of stained sections revealed a systemic granulomatous process associated with positive Zielh–Neelsen bacilli in the lesions. The immunohistochemical staining was positive in all cases and the mycobacterial antigen was detected in affected organs.
