A mature nulliparous Saanen-type goat examined for episodes of vulvar hemorrhage had coalescing nodular vaginal masses. The histopathologic diagnosis from a biopsy specimen was leiomyofibromatosis. Because of the relationship of these tumors in bitches to cystic ovaries and the nonrecurrence in bitches after excision and ovariectomy, abdominal exploration was performed. Bilaterally cystic ovaries were removed, and the vaginal tumors slowly regressed over the subsequent year, although transvaginal adhesions formed because of the extensive superficial necrosis originally present.
