Abstract: A light microscopy study of head cartilage tissue in rainbow trout alevins (Oncorhynchus mykiss) infected with the parasite Myxobolus cerebralis showed that, regardless of the presence or absence of whirling disease symptoms such as black tail and whirling swimming due to altered tail and spine morphology, some fish presented large amounts of spores lodged in the head after three months of infection. The spores were located in regions where the cartilage was extensively destroyed.
