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, taken during a fetal necropsy, this photograph depicted an aborted fetal ruminant with numerous hemorrhages, and an apparent hemothorax (blood within the thoracic cavity). This fetus was spontaneously aborted from its mother who was ill with Rift Valley fever (RVF) virus.
