Surgical correction of ocular dermoid in a Labrador dog: case report

A Rajput, V Malik, R Vijay, H Gangwar and RP Pandey

Eight month old Labrador dog was presented for the evaluation of an abnormally haired appearance of both eyes since last month. Ophthalmic examination of the dog revealed slightly elevated haired tissue arising from the temporal palpebral conjunctiva. Under general anesthesia, superficial keratectomy and conjunctivectomy were carried out to treat the animal. Dermoids are usually considered to be choristoma (normal tissue in an abnormal location) when they are located on the ocular surface (cornea and/or conjunctiva) and as hamartoma when located on the palpebral skin. The dermoid had not recurred and also there was no report of any visual impairment even after one month of surgery.
