Pathological and immunological response of calves to Mycoplasma bovis.

Pathological and immunological response of calves to Mycoplasma bovis.

Journal of Medical Microbiology 19(3): xviii-xix

M. bovis was shown to produce clinical pneumonia in gnotobiotic calves after intratracheal inoculation. At PM examination 14 or 27 days after inoculation the macroscopic lesions involved 5-37% of the lung. Stained sections of lung tissue revealed focal areas of necrosis in the lung parenchyma that were surrounded by infiltrating leukocytes. These cells were mostly macrophages and lymphocytes. Lung sections were examined for mycoplasmal antigen by immunoperoxidase staining.
