Abstract:

A six year old Holstein Friesian cross bred presented with a history of growth on the right hind teat. On clinical examination, a cauliflower like growth was noticed from the base to tip of the teat measuring about 6x3 cm in size. On ultrasonographical examination showed hyper echoic lesion on the teat wall without involving the teat cistern. Under sedation with Inj.Xylazine and local analgesia by ring block with Inj.2% Lignocaine hydrochloride the growth was completely excised using electrocautery and the defect was corrected surgically. Disposable skin staples were applied to the skin. Postoperatively, Inj.Ceftriaxone administered at the dose rate of 10mg/kg I/Mfor 7 days and 500 mg administered intramammarly for 5 days. Skin staples were removed on 10th day and healing was studied using ultrasonography hyper echogenicity of teat wall was evinced indicative of scar tissue formation. Histopathological examination confirmed the condition as fibropapiloma. Autovaccine @ 5ml at weekly interval was administered s/c for four consecutive weeks and the animal showed no recurrence afterwards.
