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 necropsy, this photograph depicts the interior of a bovine colon, or large intestine, infected with African malignant catarrhal fever (MCF). Note the phenomenon known as zebra striping of the colon’s mucosal lining, indicative of intramucosal colonic hemorrhages and congestion.
