The slaughterhouse is considered an important control point for the monitoring of rabbit diseases. In our study, 59,440 rabbit carcasses were examined, but only 1% of pathological lesions were recorded at post-mortem inspection. Mainly tegumentary, digestive and urinary systems were affected. The most consistent lesion was the subcutaneous abscess; nephritis, probably caused by Encephalitozoon cuniculi, was also frequent. A pathological alteration of the liver, classified as “necrotizing hepatitis”, localized at the caudate lobe, was observed and here firstly described.
