Enlargement and colour changes. The mesenteric lymph nodes may demonstrate the presence of lymphoma, which is very common in certain strains of mice. There is an incidence of up to 50% of lymphoma in female animals and 22% in male animals of the CD1 strain of Swiss mice (Son 2003). Phosphate-buffered saline may be used for the rinsing of the gastrointestinal tract before fixation (Knoblaugh et al. 2011). If a faecal flotation is to be performed later, flushing of intestinal contents with formalin (thus enabling faecal contents to be stored) using a 10 ml syringe and a 21G needle is advised.

The report will conclude with a diagnosis and often some prognostic interpretation. This is the commonly used approach familiar to most conventionally trained veterinary and medical diagnostic pathologists reporting on necropsy (macroscopic post mortem observations and follow up microscopic samples) or biopsy (microscopic preparations) material. In experimental pathology, the scientist or pathologist will usually be evaluating a large number of tissues from many animals and will be looking for differences in the incidence and severity of any changes present.
