Cystic nasal concha in a calf. Academic Article uri icon


  • Unilateral cystic nasal concha was diagnosed in a 6-month-old Brangus male calf by use of endoscopy, radiography, and histologic examination. Cystic nasal conchae have been excised via dorsolateral rhinotomy, but the lesion in the calf of this report was excised transnasally, with considerable ease, using obstetric wire. Postoperative complications did not develop, and the calf was reportedly in good health 3 months after discharge.
