Detection of amastigotes and histopathological alterations in the thymus of Leishmania infantum-infected dogs
Immunity, Inflammation and Disease
In canine visceral leishmaniasis (CVL), lymphopenia, and the disorganization of lymphoid organs such as spleen and lymph nodes have been demonstrated. However, the involvement of thymus in CVL has not been evaluated so far. Herein, we investigated whether the thymus can be colonized by Leishmania infantum in naturally infected dogs. Thymus were obtained from 16 of 58 dogs and samples of this organ were submitted to immunohistochemistry for laminin and fibronectin detection, histopathology, indoi:10.1002/iid3.285 pmid:32207879 fatcat:ka34khm2zjfpdbkn6cecmbd2zi
