Abstract

White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) infection was induced in tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon, under laboratory conditions, and histopathological changes in subcuticular epithelial cells of the eye stalk and pleopod were studied sequentially at different time post-challenge. Routine histological techniques using paraffin embedded tissues, as well as frozen tissues, were used to document WSSV infection. Histological manifestations such as cellular hypertrophy in the subcuticular epithelial cells of the eyestalk and pleopod could be detected as early as 18 h postinfection (p.i.) before the manifestation of clinical signs of the disease
