The objective of this study was to conduct a retrospective study from July 2017 to July 2018 on the anatomopathological changes observed in post-mortem examination in slaughterhouses in Manaus-AM. Among the evaluated organs, 23% of the pieces were found to be condemned, with 54.29% represented by lung condemnations, followed by 12.78% of legs, 9.91% of kidneys, 5.20 % of head, 3.44% of intestines, 3.06% of tongue, 2.58% of heart, 1.39% of stomachs and 1.31% of livers. The organs with the greatest number of convictions were lungs and paws, and possibly these convictions occurred due to failures during pre-slaughter or even during slaughter.
