Abstract

A ten-year-old male nubian goat with no previous medical history was found recumbent. Clinical examination revealed an underweight, dehydrated, very depressed and unresponsive animal. At necropsy, the liver contained multiple, well-demarcated hepatocellular carcinomas. The right adrenal gland contained a solitary phaeochromocytoma. Multiple leiomyomas were present within the urinary bladder. The three primary neoplasms reported in this goat have been reported separately in other species; their simultaneous occurrence in one animal is uncommon.
