Bovine tuberculosis: Kudu with generalised tuberculosis (thoracic cavity) (wkudu med tb)

Lesions in this kudu suffering from advanced tuberculosis are present within the lymphnodes and in the lungs.  The lymph nodes are markedly enlarged by a florid pyogranulomatous inflammatory reaction.  Numerous lesions are present in the lungs: older lesions are large, irregular in outline and often protrude above the surface of the lung.  Small, miliary tubercles are scattered throughtout the lung parenchyma and are more or less even in size and roundish.
