African swine fever is a viral disease of pigs characterized predominantly by haemorrhagic lesions. This paper reports the lesions observed in the renal interstitial capillaries of pigs inoculated with African swine fever virus strains of differing virulence: the Malawi'83 strain (haemadsorbent and highly virulent) and the Dominican Republic'78 strain (haemadsorbent and moderately virulent). In pigs infected with the Malawi'83 strain, petechial haemorrhages and microhaemorrhages were observed 5… CONTINUE READING
