60 cases of swine and bovine ovaries were investigated for detecting the homosiderin pigment by means of Perl's prussian blue reaction. The results abtained were as follows; 1. Among the 30 cases of normal adult swine ovaries, 20 cases (66.6%) were presented as positive. 2. The hemosiderin pigment was detected in corpus albicans, connective tissue of corpus luteum, theca externa of follicles and interstitial tissue of ovary in swine. 3. The morphological characteristics of the hemosiderin pigment of swine ovaries were fine and coarse granules or amorphous and homogenous pigment. 4. In 30 cases of bovine ovaries, the hemosiderin pigment was not detected.
