Intraovarian Abscess.

Intraovarian Abscess.
A small intraovarian abscess is present in this ovary. In the live cow this presents a diagnostic challenge to differentiate the small firm abscess from a corpus luteum. Of course, the abscess is endocrinologically inactive, hence unlikely to affect the cyclic activity. Rupture will predispose to adhesions.
