PDF version is available online.

A 5-year-old multiparous sow was examined because of weight loss and persistent abdominal enlargement following parturition. The sow had farrowed normally 1 week previously. She had developed anorexia and agalactia but did not have fever or vaginal discharge, and continued to have a distended abdomen. Euthanasia of the sow and necropsy revealed a 45-kg mass involving only one uterine horn. The incidence, cause, and differential diagnosis for uterine leiomyoma is discussed.
