Abstract

An unusual case of scrotal lymphangioma in a ongole bull is described. A 5 years old ongole bull was presented with a eight month history of swelling at the neck of scrotum. On palpation the swelling was hard in consistency. Fine needle aspiration revealed no sign of malignancy. On surgical exploration of scrotal swelling, a hard mass was observed adhering to the outerlayers of spermatic cord. The mass was excised without disturbing the testes and the associated structures. Based on cytological and histopathological examination the mass was diagnosed as lymphangioma. The surgical treatment was successful and the animal had uneventful recovery without any complications.
