Abstract:

The pathologoanatomical picture was studied in 182 naturally infected great gerbils. Of these, in 12 a generalized form of plague with the presence of septicemia was recorded, and in 88 a local form of infection was noted. In the latter the plague microbe was isolated only from the liver in 9, only from the spleen in 44, simultaneously from both organs in 28, from the adrenal glands in 0.5, and by means of only a biological test -- in 3 of the cases.
