  by Robert N. Oglesby DVM


Introduction » Clinical Signs » Diagnosis » Treatment and Prognosis » More Info 

Lymphoma is a general term for the malignant transformation of the solid tissues of the lymphatic system and is synonymous with lymphosarcoma. Lymphoma though one of the most common internal cancers of horses only has an incidence rate of less than five per 10,000 horses. There do not appear to be any breed or sex predilections but is most common in horse four to 10 years of age. This article discusses symptoms, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment.
