Postmature Tooth Development.
This specimen was from an 80-day post-term, 50 kg, Holstein calf, delivered by cesarean section. It died shortly after delivery. The upper molars show advanced development in this calf that was born by cesarean section one month past term. The gums remained intact. The calf likely suffered from adrenal insufficiency and was unable to initiate parturition.
