Defect of musculoskeletal system and congenital polycystic disease were diagnosed in two newborn piglets, respectively. Case 1 piglet was diagnosed as micromelia of the limbs and arthrogryposis of the hindlimbs. These are quite common in defect of musculoskeletal system and the causes such as viral infection and heredity should be primarily considered. Case 2, a ten-day-old piglet that was diagnosed as congenital polycystic disease, was dead without any clinical signs. At necropsy, numerous cysts filled with serous fluid were present in the liver and kidney. In addition, cleft palate was noted in hard palatine as well as soft palatine. Polycystic disease is generally inherited as an autosomal dominant trait.
