In an industrial pig production unit ten sows were selected at random. All the sows had a puerperal disease in their anamnesis. The sows were slaughtered after weaning and subjected to pathological examination. The mammary glands, uteri and bladder of ten slaughtered sows were examined for gross pathological alterations. All the sows showed symptoms of chronic mastitis (abscess, granuloma, fibrosis or cysts). Four of the examined uteri showed pathological alterations. Nine out of the ten bladders examined revealed pathological findings.
