Abstract

An 11-year-old Clydesdale gelding was presented for investigation of left forelimb lameness of 2 weeks’ duration. The use of scintigraphic imaging helped to localise the source of lameness to the left proximal humerus. In this report, the clinical and diagnostic imaging features of a primary osseous haemangiosarcoma in a horse are described, along with the challenges of establishing a definitive diagnosis ante mortem. In addition, neoplasia of the appendicular skeleton should be considered a differential cause of lameness in the horse.
