cases of horn cancer in bovine were explored for radiological
examination. The tentative diagnosis based on clinical sign and
percussion was confirmed on radiological findings. There was
loss of architecture of sinus plates with negative air contrast
indicating osteolytic changes in horn. In advanced cases, there
was dense soft tissue occupying horn core without demarcating
the osseous landmarks. Whereas, in normal and healthy horn the
septal plates with negative air contrast and normal architecture
was visualized. Thus radiological examination will be helpful
for confirmatory diagnosis of horn cancer in early stage also.
