The aim of this study was to obtain information about the location in the brain and excretory kidney of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) where the viral haemorrhagic septicaemia (VHS) virus can multiply and persist. It was demonstrated that the VHS virus multiplication occurs in both nerve cells of the brain and tubulus cells of the excretory kidney.
