Result of the histopathological examination of the brains, lungs, livers, myocards and kidneys of the samples showed a varied of the level lymphoid cells infiltration in each of the organs. From the 69 samples showed the lymphoid cells infiltration lesions consist of  67 samples (97,10%) on the brain, 60 samples (86,95%) on the lungs, 63 samples (91,30%) on the liver, 45 samples (65,21%) on the myocard, and 47 samples  (68,11%) on the kidney.
