Sažetak

The wild boar (Sus scrofa L.) is an autochthonous game species in large parts of Europe, and the permanent canines (tusks) of males are traditionally taken as trophies. Even though the tusks of shot animals have been closely examined only a few cases of wild boar tusk pathology have been described. In this paper, four different types of tusk pathology are presented. Eight samples were collected in Croatian hunting grounds during regular hunting operations, while one pair of canines originated from Slovakia. The tusk pathology described as type 1 is attributed to inflammation and partial necrosis of the dental pulp, caused by bacterial invasion. It is further assumed that infection of the enamel organ then caused the extended enamel hypoplasias, which characterize the shape of the teeth. The other three types of tusk pathology are diagnosed as being the result of either incomplete or complete extra- or intra-alveolar tusk fracture.
