Abstract

A condition characterized by hepatomegaly, splenomegaly and pulmonary echymoses was found in a wild black rat. The disease was successfully transmitted to laboratory rats and mice by intraperitoneal, intranasal and intracerebral inoculations. Microscopy indicated that the condition was probably caused by a herpesvirus.
