Present study was conducted on 390 samples of female genital tract of cattle of different age and breeds, of which 156 were found to have various abnormalities. Out of these, 55 samples revealed pathological lesions in the ovary, of which 15 cases (9.61%) were of follicular cyst. Grossly the affected ovaries were enlarged due to presence of follicular cysts in the cortex and even extending deep into the medulla. These cysts were either single or multiple. Their size varied and cavity contained serous fluid. Microscopically, cyst wall was divided into three categories: cyst wall in which granulosa layer was absent and lutenized thick theca layer present, both granulosa layer and theca layer were present and cysts in which granulosa layer was absent and theca was present without luteinization.
