 en Short communication - STUDIES ON OCULAR SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA AMONG HORSES IN BORNO STATE, NIGERIA.
J.S. RABO, H.S. USMAN AND Y.M. KOLO

Abstract

A survey of squamous cell carcinoma in horses brought to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, University of Maiduguri was made over a period of 2 years (August, 1990 to August, 1992). Of the 62 horses brought to the Hospital 3(0.05%) were diagnosed to be suffering from squamous cell carcinoma. All the 3(100%) of the horses that had squamous cell carcinoma were albinos. It was concluded that although the prevalence of ocular squamous cell carcinoma is low in the semi arid region of BornoState, the skin pigmentation has an effect on the occurrence of the condition in horses in the area.
