Unusual esophageal obstruction in buffalo necropsy

  1. 1. Unusual Esophageal obstruction in a buffalo - Necropsy Gangane G.R., Kapse S.U., Dake S.L., Kondre B.M., Rathod P.R., Musale V.B. Department of Veterinary Pathology College of Veterinary & Animal Sciences, Parbhani -431402. (M.S.) A carcass of advance pregnant buffalo was presented to the Department of Veterinary Pathology, College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Parbhani, (M.S.) for conduct of post mortem examination with the history of anorexia, generalized subcutaneous emphysema and respiratory distress. On post mortem examination a leathery layered mass with presence of ruminal content impacted within layers as depicted in photographs (Plate 1.) was found to be located just at the beginning of esophagus. The foreign mass appeared to be mixed with the ruminal content and might have come in to existence during the act of regurgitation as evidenced by findings noted. The localized earlier congestive & necrotic changes in involved esophageal mucosa, however, the walls of esophagus remain intact with out any pathological changes. Considering the history and gross lesions noted the buffalo might have died due to asphyxia as a consequence of respiratory distress caused due to esophageal obstruction.
