NOTE: Gross lesions can be extremely variable depending upon any secondary infections. Such lesions include enlarged lymph glands, particularly the inguinal (Groin) ones which are often visible, enteritis, peritonitis with fibrin deposits, enlarged liver, pleurisy, pericarditis and severe pneumonias. Oedema (fluid) in the lungs and between the lobes in the lungs are often an early diagnostic picture.
