Abstract

This study was performed on a mixed breed street cat whose immune system had been suppressed by cortisone. Necropsy following the cat's death indicated the presence of hepatized areas of 1-1.5 cm sizes located in whole lung lobules. The samples prepared for histopathological examination confirmed verminous pneumonia. The agent causing the pathology was determined to be Aelurostrongylus abstrusus.
