Histopathology of koi herpesvirus (KHV) disease
MetadataShow full item record
Common carp (Cyprinus carpio) fingerlings (total length=59-165 mm; body weight=32-63 g) were sampled in April 2004 from koi herpesvirus (KHV)-infected farms in Cirata, West Java, Indonesia for histopathological studies. Preliminary results of light microcopy examinations showed that affected fish exhibited severe gill epithelial hyperplasia and necrosis. These are typical signs characteristic to KHV disease.
