Proliferative enteropathy, caused by Lawsonia intracellularis, offers the opportunity to examine bacterial mechanisms that influence epithelial cell proliferation. Ultrastructural features of developed and resolving lesions included the presence of enlarged intestinal crypts containing undifferentiated immature epithelial cells and an absence of goblet cells. Numerous intracytoplasmic bacteria, identified as L. intracellularis, were consistently present within affected cells. In recovering… CONTINUE READING
