A two year old Jersey cross breed heifer was brought to the Veterinary Dispensary, Kelur with the history of swelling on the left paralumbar region. Clinical examination revealed a soft to firm mass of about 3 cm diameter. Surgically excised mass was subjected to histopathological examination. Grossly the mass revealed a circumscribed soft to firm gray white colored nodule. Upon incision it was congested, firm and gray white color. Microscopical examination revealed interwoven bundles of collagen fibers and fibrocytes were arranged in haphazard pattern. The neoplastic cells were spindle shaped cells with pale ovoid to elongated nuclei and contained single to multiple nucleoli. The cells had indistinct cytoplasm. Scanty mitotic figures were seen. Picrosirius red special stain revealed red colored neoplastic fibrocytes. Based on the gross, histopathology and special staining, the mass was confirmed as fibroma on the left paralumbar region.
