Captured during the necropsy of a deceased muskrat, this mage revealed findings indicative of a case of tularemia, which was later confirmed by a fluorescent antibody (FA) microscopic examination, an example of which can be seen in PHIL 1905 through 1909. In this particular view, the animal’s spleen and thoracic organs, including its lungs and heart, had been excised, and were being examined for signs of tularemia, which included pinpoint necrotic foci that were evident in the spleen’s mottled coloration.
