Clinical and pathological findings (anorexia, hemorrhage, lethargy, loss of orientation and exophthalmia) indicated that Streptococcus iniae type II is responsible for a fatal disease in rainbow trout. Histopathological findings revealed that S. iniae type II produces a systemic disease, including a diffuse necrotizing myositis. The distribution of viable bacteria in infected tissues substantiated the pathological findings, confirming that S. iniae type II is responsible for a generalized septic disease of rainbow trout.
