Abstract

This paper describes the clinical case of multiple nodular cutaneous xanthogranulomata located at the right beak commissure and the submandibular space of a 5 year-old female goose. The masses were surgically excised and submitted for histopatological examination. A blood sample taken at the same time as this surgery revealed hypercholesterolaemia and hypertriglyceridaemia. A blood sample taken from a second goose housed with and fed the same diet as the affected goose revealed normal cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Dietary modification and other measures were instigated in an attempt to reduce the triglyceride levels in the affected goose and hopefully prevent the recurrence of the cutaneous xanthomatous neoplasms. These measures resulted in a significant decrease in the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the goose. Xanthomatous lesions in association with high blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels have been rarely reported.(1, 2, 3, 4) A very similar case to the one reported here was reported by Jaensch et al.(1, 2) This second case in a goose suggests that the syndrome of persistent hypercholesterolaemia and hypertriglyceridaemia and resultant cutaneous xanthomatous neoplasms may not be an isolated incident and avian veterinarians should be watchful for this clinical picture in geese.
