Eight-year-old, pony mare with multiple, mixed sarcoids.

This patient presented with multiple, mixed sarcoids, which had been treated previously and unsuccessfully with a variety of topical treatments. Of particular concern was the large, 12 cm diameter, ulcerated sarcoid on the inner right thigh.

The surgery was performed under standing sedation, with all of the patient’s numerous sarcoids excised at that time. Despite a necessarily lengthy procedure, the patient recovered rapidly and uneventfully. On following-up the case, the owner was delighted to report that the pony mare remained in remission two and a half years after the initial surgery.
