Clostridium perfringens type D enterotoxaemia: Focal, symetrical encephalomalacia



Note the presence of bilaterally symetrical malacia in the basal ganglia of the cerebrum.  The lesions are well-demarcated, roundish, and reflect the typical appearance of lytic necrosis in the CNS detectable by the mild, brownish discoloration of the lesion.  Mild swelling due to oedema can be detected in the right hemisphere where it bulges into the ventricle
