Abstract


A five year old cross bred cow presented with an abnormal growth on its right eye over a period of 8 months. Clinical
examination revealed a cauliflower like growth extending from nictitans to the lateral canthus of the eye with unilateral
epiphora. The condition was tentatively diagnosed as Squamous Cell Carcinoma and enucleation was done. Postoperatively antibiotics and
NSAIDs were administered and the animal made an uneventful recovery.


Keywords
