Abstract: The objective of this survey was to provide information about pig renal diseases to reduce death rate in pig. Five hundred and eighty-six kidney samples were screened to establish the diversity of renal disorders in pigs irrespective of age, sex and breed at organized and unorganized farms of Bikaner, Jaipur and Alwar districts of Rajasthan. Out of 586 specimens, total of 154 specimens of kidneys were showing macroscopic lesions. Thirty-eight cases of interstitial nephritis, out of 154 specimens of kidney after visual or palpation were processed for further histopathological examination at the Department of Veterinary Pathology, Bikaner. Diffuse interstitial nephritis 17 (11.04) and Focal interstitial nephritis 21(13.64) cases was reported. Interstitial nephritis is infiltration of inflammatory cells in interstitial tissue. Diffuse interstitial nephritis showed gross lesion, many grey-white foci observed on the surface of the cortex. The gross lesion of focal interstitial nephritis was the kidneys were swollen, small greyish foci scattered over the cortex.
