Abstract:

Prevalence and pathomorphology of bacterial infection of the liver and kidneys was studied in swine population from postmortem carcasses of pigs in the Department of Veterinary Pathology, College of Veterinary science, Assam Agricultural University (AAU), Khanapara, Guwahati-22. A total of 21 (48.8%) liver and 9(20.9%) kidney samples were found to be positive forthe presence of bacterial infection out of 43 samples examined during the study. Bacteria isolated were mainly Streptococcus spp. (10.5%), Staphylococcus spp. (6.97%), Micrococcus spp. (1.16%), E. coli (11.6%), Klebsiella spp. (2.32%), Pasteurella spp. (2.32%) and some mixed bacterial infection were also recorded. Grossly, various pathological changes including congestion, haemorrhage, necrosis, abscesses were recorded in the liver and kidneys. Microscopically, focal leukocytic infiltration, centrilobular necrosis, fatty changes were recorded in the liver. Similarly various alterations such as coagulative necrosis of the renal tubules, massive haemorrhages and leukocytic infiltrations in the interstitial spaces, glomerular atrophy and scelerosis were noticed in kidneys.
