The cavitary corpus luteum is the premature closure of the place where ovulation occurred. Its basic cause is a failure of the pituitary gland, which ends up releasing a quantity of insufficient luteinizing hormone, for the adequate development of the corpus luteum. We describe at a present case of cavitary corpusluteum, diagnose by histopathological examination, in one of the ovaries of a cow slaughtered in a slaughterhouse. In live animals, the cavitary corpus luteum by rectal palpation has the same characteristics as a normal, large and swollen corpus luteum. It is diagnosed only bay ultrasonography, ovariectomy accompanied by histophatology or post-mortem. The objective of this study is to report the case of cavity corpus luteum emphasizing its importance.
