Abstract

This paper describes a case of a sessile uterine leiomyoma in a 17-year-old chronic infertileSelle Français mare. The mass was removed by transendoscopic electrocoagulation. In the sameperiod, 725 mares were screened for oviductal and uterine solid masses in a slaughterhouse survey.Two uterine masses and one oviductal mass were detected in three different mares. Histologicaland immunohistochemical examination revealed leiomyoma in the four masses. To the authors’knowledge, this is the fi rst report of an oviductal leiomyoma in a mare.
