Abstract

  Osteosarcoma (OSA) is the most pervasive bone tumor in the skeletal framework. Metaphyseal region of the appendicular skeleton is the most normally influenced site by OSA especially in more established age animals. The long bones explicitly the radius has been seen to be the most frequently influenced site. Seven years old male Chinkara deer (Gazella bennettii) was referred to clinic for evaluation of the chronic left thoracic limb lameness and progressively increasing pain on the palpation site below and at level of the elbow joint. Patient’s overall health status was good. Upon Physical examination marked painful swelling was observed below and at level of elbow joint. Radiographic examination revealed large extra-osseous mass/growth originating from distal extremity of radius extending up to the elbow joint. Based on history, physical examination and radiographic examination case was diagnosed as radial osteosarcoma. Hence left thoracic limb amputation was performed. Upon examination it was observed that about 90 percent of radius was involved, so mid-humeral amputation was performed.
