 A male camel of 2 years of age was presented in the Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, F.V.Sc and AH., R.S Pura, Jammu for treatment with a history of growth at the axillary region near right forelimb for the last 1 month. On gross examination, growth was hard, fibrous and painful skin erosion on the medial side. On microscopic examination, revealed haphazardly arranged interlacing bundles of fibroblast and collagen fibres were observed. Histopathological examination revealed that it was a case of fibroma. The value of mAgNOR for fibroma was found to be 1.80 ± 0.88. .
