Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease: Deer, rumen and reticulum. The serosal surface of the rumen has fine linear to coalescing hemorrhages, and there is extensive congestion and hemorrhage of the ruminal and reticular mucosa.

Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease: Deer, lungs and trachea. There is moderate to marked widening of interlobular septa (edema). The tracheal mucosa is diffusely congested and contains several blood clots, and there are a few small pleural hemorrhages.

Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease: Deer, pulmonary artery and lungs. Locally extensive adventitial hemorrhage at the base of the pulmonary artery is considered pathognomonic for EHD and bluetongue in ruminants. Lungs contain many red areas (congestion and hemorrhage).
