Mummified fetuses are due to autolysis and dehydration, without maceration caused by bacteria replication. The mummification process starts approximately 6 days after fetus death. Outbreaks of reproductive disease with presence of mummified fetuses are generally associated with viral infections (PRRSv, porcine parvovirus, PCV2, Aujeszky's diseases virus, etc).
