Pulmonary aspergillosis (cat T). Section of lung from a young adult, female domestic short haired cat. This was one of seven unvaccinated farm cats that died over a 12 month period. At necropsy examination there was diffuse pulmonary consolidation with scattered abscessation. Aspergillus spp. was cultured from these lesions. The cat also had histopathological evidence of lymph node atrophy, a change that may be attributed to feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infection.
