Finnish-Landrace sheep-L. glomerulopathy
an inherited disease found in lambs less than 4 months old. Many are found dead. Enlarged kidneys are palpable and there is a high BUN level and proteinuria. Most cases are in purebred Finnish-Landrace lambs but cases have occurred in crossbred lambs. The pathogenetic basis of the disease is a mesangiocapillary glomerulitis caused by the deposition of immune complexes in the walls of the renal capillaries. Called also F.-L. glomerulonephritis.
