Author(s):
Radhakrishna Rao J and MS Didugu
Abstract:
A Nellore Brown ewe of 5 years was presented to the Veterinary Clinical Complex, C.V.Sc, P.V.N.R.T.V.U, Hyderabad with a history of a large pedunculated and ulcerated growth on the ventral abdomen between the umbilicus and the udder. The cauliflower like mass grew in size over a period of a year. The growth was irregular in shape, ulcerated, hard in consistency and emitting foul odour. The tumour was excised under sedation with Inj. Xylazine @ 0.05mg per kg body weight and local infiltration with Inj. Lignocaine HCl was given as a ring block around the tumour. The ewe recovered uneventfully. The histopathology revealed that the tumour was a squamous cell carcinoma.
