Immediately prior to surgery

Sixteen-year-old, Thoroughbred-cross gelding with multiple, mixed sarcoids.

This patient presented with multiple, mixed sarcoids, consisting of an extremely large, multi-lobed, fibroblastic sarcoid on his sheath, with two satellite, nodular sarcoids situated in close proximity to the primary tumour. The large fibroblastic sarcoid had grown rapidly after a long period of quiesescence.

The surgery was able to be conducted at the owner’s own yard under standing sedation. The patient recovered both rapidly and unproblematically: within three weeks he was ready to be worked again, with only a barely-perceptible scar present at the surgical site.
