Abstract

A solitary mass overlying the right carpal joint region's skin in an 18-year-old female Père Davids deer (Elaphurus davidianus) was surgically excised and histologically diagnosed as a squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The tumor was locally infiltrative, showing rather few “horn pearls” and many mitotic figures. This is the first report of a cutaneous SCC in the Père David's deer.
