Abstract

A 1-year-old, 267 kg Morgan filly presented with progressive unilateral facial swelling. Physical, radiographic, and gross pathological findings suggested a diagnosis of maxillary and conchal cystic osteodystrophia fibrosa which was verified by microscopic examination. Pronounced hypertrophy of the parathyroid glands supported the etiologic diagnosis of nutritional secondary hyperparathyroidism.
