Largely mummified litter believed to be caused by Parvo virus (but not confirmed in this case).
Roberts SJ (1973)
Some fetuses died and started to mummify earlier than others, based on their relative sizes.
Larsen RE (1979)
Multiple firm masses of different sizes could be palpated within the uterus.
The sow had a high titer for Leptospira spp. Some or all of the fetuses may have been infected and died due to a leptospiral septicemia. Mummification had started in some fetuses.
McEntee K (1973)
Some of the fetuses may have been infected and died due to a leptospiral septicemia or a Parvo virus infection. Mummification is in various stages.
Shipley C (2006)
Late fetal death due to Parvo virus infection.
Dead fetus with abdominal distension and in early stage of mummification [note sunken-in eye socket] due to Parvo virus infection.
Porcine mummy believed to be associated with a respiratory syndrome.
Prado TM (2007)
Porcine fetuses likely infected with an enterovirus [SMEDI: Stillborn, Mummification, Embryonic Death, Infertility].
Smith MC (2011)
24 day embryo in a blood tinged amniotic vesicle. Parvo virus infection caused embryonic death.
Evans LE (2009)
This is an example of a mid-trimester Parvo virus infection. Fetuses have died at different ages and have mummified.
Multiple mummies plus one fetus that survived for a while longer, the result of Parvo virus infection.
Multiple mummies plus one fetus that succumbed later, as the result of Parvo virus infection.
Abortion due to pseudorabies. The membranes are intact and appear to be autolysed.
Abortion due to pseudorabies. The membranes are intact and appear to be autolytic.
Abortion due to pseudorabies. All fetuses were about the same age at the time of death.
Vascular damage prior to abortion. Embryo still intact. Etiology: Parvo virus.
Vascular damage in the chorioallantois prior to abortion. Embryo still intact. Etiology: Parvo virus.
Three degenerating embryos at slightly different ages. Etiology: Parvo virus.
Two 24 to 26 day embryos from the uterus with a damaged feto-placental unit. Cause not determined. There is evidence of hemorrhage in the chorionic vessels of the upper embryo.
