Caption: From the “Illustrated Manual for the Recognition and Diagnosis of Certain Animal Diseases”, published in 1982, by the Mexico-United States Commission for the Prevention of Foot and Mouth Disease, captured during a swine's necropsy, this photograph depicts the grossly-pathologic appearance of the spleen in a pig with an acute case of African swine fever (ASF). Known as splenomegaly, the spleen was enlarged, and friable, i.e., easily fragmented or torn apart, and in this state, is sometimes referred to as blackberry jam spleen.
