The report describes a case of unilateral carpal hygromaon left forelimb weighing 35 kg in a 5 years old Sahiwal cattle weighing 298 kg. The swelling was present dorsal to the carpal joint and gradually increased in size from last 1.5 years. On palpation the swelling was soft at the base and hard cranially. Aspiration was done at the most caudal aspect of the growth revealed pyogenic discharge. The stab incision was made to drain the pus. Growth was resected under IVRA after applying tourniquet proximal to carpal joint with the animal in lateral recumbency. The whole pyogenic membrane was peeled off without exposing the joint capsule and skin sutures were applied to control the bleeding after flushing it with normal saline. The pressure bandaging was done using creepe bandaging. The animal recovered uneventfully gaining its normal gait.

Keywords: unilateral carpal hygromaon forelimb, palpation
