Abstract

Multiple, nodular, pigmented masses protruding from the cornea and adjacent sclera of the left eye of a white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) were diagnosed as choristomas (dermoids). Microscopically, the masses contained well-differentiated skin, cartilage, and bone. This appears to be the first report of a corneoscleral choristoma in a cervid.
