Re: [Histonet] proventricular dilatation images?

From:Cheryl Cross

Hi I-sanna -

I don't have any images readily available - there is a nice little  
review with some histopathology here, however:

What I can tell you is that in many cases  can be a very very subtle  
disease - often there are just a few lymphocytes around the nerve  
ganglia - very very subtle. if you look at just a normal  
proventriculus histology book - an animal with really remarkable with  
have a thinned, stretched out proventriculus, but the histology can  
look very similar. It's easier to diagnose grossly (in my experience  
anyway), because the amount of inflammation histopathologically  
doesn't always match up with the degree of dilatation (ie animals  
with a marked dilation can have minimal inflammation).

make sense?
