Abstract:

Ocular squamous cell carcinoma is the most common neoplasm of the eye in cattle. It is a primary neoplasm of epithelial origin which occurs in different ocular and periocular tissues. Bovine ocular squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) also called “Cancer eye” represents the most economically important and malignant tumor among tumors affecting large animals. In group A six animals with third eyelid tumour after the surgical excision subjected to subcutaneous administration of BCG vaccine at 0, 5 and 15 day. In group B six animals with third eyelid tumour after surgical excision subjected to administration of Mitomycin C 0.04% topically on alternate weeks for two months as adjunctive therapy. All the animals observed for a follow up period of six months for recurrence of tumor.
