Abstract
The distribution of antigen and pathological changes induced by an experimental infection with Aeromonas hydrophila strain KJ99, and its extracellular products, were studied in two species of fish. The microorganism was disseminated systemically and the haemodynamic and tissue changes were similar to those observed in septicaemia of mammals. Intussusception, degeneration and necrosis of the nervous plexus and muscular layers of the gastrointestinal tract were common findings.
