Histologically, there is necrosis of the internal viscera, especially the liver, heart, kidney, and spleen, often with depletion of the hematopoietic tissue. The necrotic lesions that occur with V.

In contrast, the polymerase-chain reaction (PCR) method has also been used for rapid detection of bacterial nucleic acid in fish tissues (Gustafson, Thomas, and Trust 1992; Hiney et al. 1992; Miyata, Inglis, and Aoki 1996; Hoie, Heum, and Thoresen 1997) and has often been used in combination with bacterial culture and identification as the preferred diagnostic method in several laboratories.
