[Pathomorphological changes in Brucella ovis-infected sheep].Vet Med Nauki. 1980; 17(3):31-8.VM
In spontaneously infected with Br. ovis rams, as well as in experimentally infected with the same infection sheep and rams, besides the morphological changes in the epididymis with some part of the animals, we also observed granulomas in the lungs with a specific morphological structure. The presence of Br. ovis was proved in a number of organs such as the epididymis, the seminal ampullae, the lungs, the kidneys, the liver and the myocardium. In spite of the presence of bacteria no morphological changes were observed in the kidneys, the liver and the myocardium. The find of bacteria in the lungs was more frequent rather than the presence of granulomas.
