Abstract

This study consisted of comparative histopathological examination of endometrium in repeat breeder as well as fertile cows. In fertile and repeat breeder cows, hyperaemia, edema, and focal haemorrhages with the desquamated epithelial cells in gland lumens were observed. Subclinical endometritis was determined in 8 repeat breeder cows (53.33%). inflammatory cell infiltration, degeneration and desquamation in the epithelial lamina, glandular dilatation and periglandular fibrosis were determined in 8 (53.33%), 5 (33.33%), 3 (20.0%) and 2 (13.33%) of cows having endometritis respectively.
