Abstract

Necropsy examination was performed on a 26-month-old adult primigravid female guinea pig (sow). Morbid changes in the ovaries include fluid filled, large cysts replacing a majority of the ovarian tissue. Microscopic evaluation showed that the ovaries were composed of multiple, variable sized follicular cysts lined by low columnar epithelium with marked compression and desquamation of the ovarian tissue, consistent with that of cystic ovaries. Uterus showed mild multifocal adenomatous hyperplastic changes in the endometrium.
