[en] lipoma ; horse
[en] This case report describes an infiltrative lipoma in a horse. A slow-growing mass, detected early afterbirth, was present at the caudal aspect of the foreleg (antebrachium) of a 2-year-old gelding. Cytological fea-tures were that of a benign lipoma. Surgical resection was attempted but failed due to the infiltrative natureof the mass. Consequently, the horse was euthanized. Histopathology revealed an infiltrative lipoma. Thistumor is histologically benign but surgical resection is usually impossible due to its infiltrative nature.
