Lesions observed in the testicular parenchyma from acutely infected bulls. Testicular parenchyma with H&E staining. a Degenerated seminiferous tubules and absence of sperm. Seminiferous tubules with different degrees of atrophy inside which aberrant spermatids can be observed (black arrows). Surrounding the tubules there is fibrosis and inflammation (b).
