Acid-fast Stain: Bovine Ileum
This is a high power magnification photomicrograph of a Ziel-Neelsen acid-fast stained
histopathology section of the bovine ileum. Use of special stains allows the mycobacteria (red
rod-shaped bacteria) to be seen. M. paratuberculosis grows as clumps inside macrophages.
