Corpus luteum cysts are similar in appearance, except that in place of follicular epithelium around the inner wall, lutein cells and connective tissue are always found. The fluid is often darker in color and may even be blood stained. It is usually thin, but in one of our cases it was of a thick, gelatinous consistency and yellow in color. Embryonal remains of the Wolffian ducts are occasionally cystic but are very infrequent in cattle. They are most often found on the broad ligament. The cystadenomata are not often described in veterinary literature and are therefore of little importance in sterility. Kitt (40) reports them as developing to the size of 20 to 30 or even 90 kilos in weight in the mare and cow. They are true neoplasms arising from continued ingrowths of either Pflugers egg cords or superficial ovarian germinal epithelium. This ingrowth ordinarily is not continued after birth, but when it occurs it gives rise to these adenomatous structures. Cavities lined with simple cuboidal epithelium supported by a connective tissue stroma is the characteristic picture presented. The growth of epithelium spreads from the parent cyst. Daughter cysts are thus produced until a multilocular arrangement is formed. The epithelium secretes either a serous fluid or a pseudomucinous one, quite jellylike in consistency. Either simple or papillary arrangement of the epithelial lining may be the typical appearance.
