Extraglomerular lesions in kidneys of mink with encephalitozoonosis


Acta Veterinaria Scandinavica 33(1): 33-41
Extraglomerular lesions in kidneys of mink with encephalitozoonosis
Extraglomerular renal lesions were studied by light and electron microscopy in 13 farmed mink which showed cataractous eyes associated with spontaneous encephalotizoonosis. The extraglomerular renal lesions consisted of multiple renal cysts, multifocal-to-coalescing interstitial nephritis and vasculitis. Tubular cysts of varying size were present in the corticomedullary junction and medulla. The inflammatory infiltrates were composed mostly of lymphocytes and plasma cells and usually accompanied an interstitital fibrosis. Vasculitis, perivasculitis and sclerotic arteries were frequently seen.
