    Infected lymph node pictures.............discuss

    Some of you may be aware of my quest for DSC2.
    Last Saturday a.m. I set out with my assessor and eventually got into a group of 5x Roe, having narrowly missed getting into an earlier one.
    A doe was selected for cull and duly shot, tracked and found (only 40m through a hedge and over a ditch).
    The gralloch commenced and all went well until the lymph nodes were checked.
    I had seen that the mesenteric chain was enlarged and other sites were found to be clear and normal. There were no signs (pre-shot) of any distress in the animal and there were no external signs of injury or disease. Indeed the animal was skinned on arrival to the larder as it was for home use.
    So, any suggestions?
    The lumps were not gritty or chalky and the consistency of the infections was smooth almost pus-like.
    The final picture is of the incised spleen which had 2x white lumps on it too.
    The closest I can find on google is
    Follicular lymphoma (in pictures). The lungs were some of the best I have seen for quite a while with no signs of disease.
    I will leave the AW to wade in if he wants too.

    Google 'germinal centre'. I accept the lymph nodes are enlarged and reactive, but they are not a homogeneous structure. I can't see anything that looks like abscess material only the lymph node doing it's job - producing white blood cells.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    If that is spleen in the least picture, I have a similar slide of TB in a sika spleen. I'd report it as suspect

    Hi mate, welcome to the site. I would suggest that having read your introduction and this post, the best thing you can do is get yourself on a DSC level 1 course, or at least get the manual and read it. It will answer you above questions as well as many more that you may have, and will give you a good base knowledge to begin your journey into the world of deer management.
    Regards,
    MS

    As MS says, the ability to identify anomalies in a carcass and knowing what to do when you find them is one of the key elements covered by DSC1 (and also by the standalone Game Meat Hygiene course). all the same, as you can see, the SD is a great place to share information on the subject, particularly when well illustrated with pictures, as here.
