Occurrence of osteochondromatosis (multiple cartilaginous exostoses) in a domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus)


de Brot, S; Grau-Roma, L; Vidal, E; Segales, J (2013). Occurrence of osteochondromatosis (multiple cartilaginous exostoses) in a domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus). Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation, 25(5):599-602.

Abstract

Osteochondromatosis is a condition in which multiple benign, cartilage-capped tumors arise from the surface of bones formed by endochondral ossification. The current report describes the presence of 4 prominent exophytic masses, measuring between 4 and 13 cm in diameter, arising from the surface of the ribs, and located within the thoracic cavity, in a 2-year-old female domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus). Histological studies revealed that masses were well- ifferentiated, cartilage-capped proliferations with an orderly pattern of endochondral mineralization toward deeper areas. The observed gross and microscopic findings are characteristic of osteochondromatosis.
