just like in milk fever. What is the cause

of acidosis in this case?

A. ethylene gas

B. alcohol dehydrogenase

C. glycolic acid

D. acetic acid

2. Histopath sections showed oxalate

crystals in the kidney. What is the lesion

produced by these crystals in the kidney?

A. chronic interstitial nephritis (CIN)

B. acute tubular necrosis

C. acute glomerulonephritis

D. chronic tubular embolism

3. This kidney belonged to a cat

that was showing signs of polyuria

and later on progressed to anuria

indicating severe nephron damage.

Previously the cat was diagnosed

to be positive to Feline Infectious

Peritonitis. There is still hope that

kidney function can be restored if

the following lesions are not


A. glomerulotubular necrosis and

interstitial nephrosis

B. interstitial hemorrhage and

tubular edema

C. damaged basement membrane

and fibrosis

D. infarct and embolism

4. If this is the kidney and blood of a cow that ingested too much

bracken fern (Pterygium aquilinum), a lot of damage will happen

in the kidney due to the plant alkaloid toxin quercetin.

The diagnosis for this disease is:

A. toxic glomerulonephritis C. bovine enzootic hematuria

B. hemoglobinuric nephritis D. grass tetany

5. If the cow will not immediately die and will continue to eat the

bracken fern, further pathological lesions will occur in the

urinary bladder, which is histopathologically described as:

formation is indicative of:

A. severe tubular necrosis

B. nephrotic syndrome

D. renal sarcoma

8. This horse had laminitis and was treated with phenylbutazone. Instead

of getting better the horse died and the kidney showed papillary necrosis

secondary to ischemia. Select the statement NOT TRUE for this condition:

A. The phenylbutazone interfered with production of renal prostaglandins.

B. The alteration in prostaglandins caused vasoconstriction and loss of perfusion

to the distal tissues of the kidney.

C. The phenylbutazone produced toxic glomerulonephritis.

D. The vasocontriction caused the papilla to become ischemic and then necrotic.

9. The dog had necrotic brown tissue in the kidney (white arrows). A

sample of urolith is shown in the right picture. Select the statement

that is NOT TRUE in this case:

specific lesions associated with renal failure by filling in the blanks for the

following pictures:

which do not have crisp borders as lipid vacuoles do.

26. This dog is "headpressing" due to hepatic

encephalopathy. On necropsy, the dog had severe

hepatic cirrhosis or "end-stage" liver disease (right picture)


This condition is due to glucoronic acid retention and

43. It was a hot summer day when you were called by a livestock farmer

because he found his cattle dead on the field with bloated abdomen.

as seen in the picture on the right, you are sure the cause of the bloat is

antemortem, not postmortem.

attempted but the poor puppy died. Necropsy showed the small intestine with

factor of this disease. _______________________________________






45. The piglets were dehydrated due to watery

diarrhea (A). Necropsy showed dilated and fluid-

filled instestine (B). Histopath showed villous atrophy (C).

Electron microscopy identified the causative agent

with characteristic morphological appearance (D).

WHAT IS THE DIAGNOSIS ? _______________________



46. The causative agent gets into enterocytes, mostly crypt cells, of the ileum and

causes them to proliferate. Affected gut (A) is on the top; normal is below There is

a definite "cerebral" pattern to the intestinal wall. Histopath (B) shows the lymphoid

tissues of Peyer’s patches underneath the thick polypoid proliferating mucosa,

not in an orderly form of epithelium. This form of PPE (PorcineProliferative Enteropathy)

is known as porcine intestinal adenomatosis (PIA)

What is the ETIOLOGY ?__________________________________



47. Grossly, the disease can be hemorrhagic (A), or more fibrinous (B)

Either way, the pig has diarrhea and is dehydrating out its hind end.

The feces are reported to be quite characteristic because of all the eclectic

contents. They are described as being gray and greasy, and often flecked

with fibrin or blood. The pigs, because of the chronic diarrhea, are often

described as being "slab-sided" because they lose the nice back fat

that makes them appear rounded and slightlyroly-poly.

B. What is the etiology ? ________________________

were suffering from diarrhea. One animal is shown in

picture A with unthrifty appearance and with swollen

cervical lymph nodes. Picture B shows affected and normal

intestine above and below, respectively. Take note of the

thick corrugated intestinal mucosa. Picture C shows the

big ballooned macrophages in the intestinal mucosa and

picture D the same section stained with acid-fast showed

that the big ballooned macrophages contained

acid-fast bacilli.


A. What is the name of the disease ?

B. What is the etiology of this disease ?




49.This is usually a systemic disease in dogs and other animals,

with the worst lesions in the lung. Sometimes there are lesions in

the intestines as well (A). The lamina propria gets chock-full of

macrophages filled with the organism and there is backup of

lymph flow (picture A, arrows). On cut section, the lamina propria

is markedly expanded (B). There is a macrophage in the center,

filled with the organism (C).

WHAT IS THE ETIOLOGY ? ____________________________
