Abstract

A total of 390 samples of female genital tract were examined from cattle of different age and breeds, of which 156 were found to have various abnormalities. Out of these, 64 samples revealed pathological lesions in the uterus, of which 1 case (0.64%) was of adenomyosis. Microscopically, foci of displaced endometrial glands were noticed either in single or numerous groups, superficial or deep extending into the myometrium and endometrial glands were present in myometrium.
