    Abstract : A thin, lactating and uncoordinated female white-tailed deer was submitted for necropsy as part of a surveillance program for chronic wasting disease (CWD). Laboratory tests for CWD and rabies were negative. Postmortem examination revealed pulmonary and submandibular lymph node abscesses associated with Arcanobacterium pyogenes and Pasteurella. The overall presentation suggests that the infections may have been associated with chronic stress.
