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 pathologic appearance of the spleen in a pig with an acute case of Brazilian strain African swine fever (ASF). The spleen is enlarged, known as splenomegaly, and mottled brown in color. See PHIL 12810, for the appearance of a normal porcine spleen.
