Summary

An immunofluorescence study was made on bovine hepatic abscess containing Fusobacterium necrophorum predominantly. The abscess section stained with anti F. necrophorum hemolysin serum demonstrated fluorescence which formed irregular and granular shapes. Actinomyces pyogenes isolates from the abscess were not stained with the serum. These findings suggest that the bacterial hemolysin contributes to the formation of the hepatic abscess during an infection with F. necrophorum.
