The present clinical study describes successful surgical management of a rectal stricture due to circumferential fibroma (fibrous ring) in two recently calved adult buffaloes. Both buffaloes had a chronic history of straining while defecation with no rectal prolapse. At presentation, these buffaloes were passing scanty and pasty feces. Per rectal examination revealed rectal stricture due to demarkable circumferential fibrous ring which was later histopathologically diagnosed as fibroma in the sub mucosa of the rectum. Surgical resection of the fibrous ring was done under caudal epidural anesthesia. Both buffaloes recovered uneventfully and no recurrence of this condition was observed on long term follow up of 4 years and six months, respectively.
