ID:	21996Hi All,

    Shot my first Fallow doe out of the new high seat tonight. When doing the graloch, I found what appears to be white nodules on the liver and around the stomach area. Photographs attached for you to see for yourselves. Could anyone shine any light on on what the cause of this may be? The doe was also in a poor condition. Not alot of meat on the haunches.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Phil

    Professor Jim Simpson at the Royal (Dick) Veterinary College, Edinburgh is looking for samples of any unusual lesions found in wild deer to help with a study he is completing. He will help you, you can email him jimmy.simpson@ed.ac.uk , collect a sample of affected tissue either fresh (if delivered quickly) or kept frozen or in formalin where there is a delay. Email your picture and short statement of what you have found.

    Saw something vaguely similar in cattle many moons ago inspector thought it may be some sort of TB
    This is just a guess.
    very interested to know what some professional might think of it

    I had a look at my disease cards from the BDS and the nearest one was liver fluke.

    Perhaps if you section the liver; if it is fluke the ducts are enlarged and inflamed and look like old clay pipe stems.

    The wet weather means that there are more of the snails which are the intermediate host for the larvae and they will be on the grass the deer eats.

    But only a wild guess.

    anwser will be from a vet.
