Specimens from sheep of different age groups, sex and breeds were examined. Out of total 587 specimens, 161 specimens (147 specimens of heart and 14 specimens of aorta, coronary arteries and major arteries), suspected for pathological abnormalities, and were further processed for histopathological examination. Calcification of aorta was recorded in 6 cases. Macroscopically, thickened and irregular areas were seen on the inner wall of aorta.
