Liver cirrhosis was detected at a high rate from among pigs brought to the Omiya Abattoir, Saitama Prefecture, by a swine husbandry man over a period of January to May, 1969. The affected pigs presented no marked gross changes other than liver cirrhosis. Histologically, the liver showed thickening of the stroma and formation of septula, paeudolobules, or pseudo-biliary ducts. Hepatic cells were mostly affected with focal vacuolar degeneration, necrosis, and colliquation. Large nucleated or polynuclear cells appeared. In the kidney, vacuolar degeneration occurred to epithelial cells of some uriniferous tubules, and large nucleated and polynuclear cells appeared. The ovary had follicular cyst.
