Journal of Swine Health and Production 14(3): 145-148



This report describes a clinical case of Leptospira interrogans serovar Pomona infection in finishing pigs, associated with multifocal interstitial nephritis that resulted in carcass condemnation at slaughter. Clinical signs of leptospirosis were not observed. On gross examination, kidneys varied from slightly shrunken to 1.5 times normal size, with pale mottling extending through the cortex and into the medulla.
