Abstract

The present case report describes successful surgical management of an unusual descent of gangrenous udder tissue into the teat cistern of a 15 years old non-gravid Murrah buffalo. The condition was one year chronic and the diameter and length of the left hind teat had gradually increased to 12.5 cm and 16 cm, respectively. On palpation teat was firm and non-painful. The B-mode ultrasonography showed presence of echogenic structure surrounded by hypo echoic contents within the teat cistern. Needle aspiration yielded pus. Surgical exploration revealed unusual descent of gangrenous udder tissue into the teat cistern, which was successfully managed.
