Histological observation of C. avium infection in hens (15 dpi) using H&E staining and scanning electronic microscopic observation. Cryptosporidium infection was found in the epithelial cells of the bursa fabricii (BF) (a, b, ×1000) (arrows). Cryptosporidium infection was more pronounced in the longitudinal plica of the BF when histologically observed by scanning electron microscopy (c-f, arrows)
