Abstract

A hunter-killed wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo silvestris) was submitted for examination because of numerous 2 to 30 mm diameter, yellowish, hard nodules in the skin. The nodules were confined to the skin and did not involve subcutaneous tissues. Nodules consisted of dilated feather follicles packed with a caseous tan to pale yellow material. Histologically, affected feather follicles were markedly dilated and filled with laminated keratin debris. The lesions were determined to be multiple feather follicle cysts of unknown etiology.
