Mycoplasma infection in calves. 3. Histology of pneumonia due to M. bovis

Histological changes following experimental infection with M. bovis at first consisted of cellular inflammatory exudate (granulocytes) in the bronchioles and proliferation of the inflammatory process into peribronchial tissue (interstitial pneumonia). Endobronchial proliferation resulted in the development of lobular exudative catarrhal to catarrhal-purulent bronchopneumonia, particularly in the cranial regions of the lung.
