A large osteochondroma of the skull was diagnosed in a young adult free-ranging white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) from Wyoming. The 4.8-kg neoplasm primarily involved the left frontal bone with extension into the cranial cavity. Microscopically, the neoplasm was composed of well differentiated trabecular bone and islands of cartilage. This neoplasm is rare in domestic species and has not been reported in cervids. Though benign in morphology, the location and size of the neoplasm was probably responsible for debilitation of the deer.
