Unilateral Forelimb Micromelia and Concurrent Aphalangia in a Kid: A Case Report
MetadataShow full item record
Congenital malformations and inherited disorders constitute a substantial proportion of the bone pathologies seen in sheep and goats. The macroscopic and radiographic features of a micromelia with aphalangia case are described here in a 2-month-old, 12 kg male kid. In vivo the animal showed a shortened right forelimb that ended, at the level of the digits, in soft hoof. Radiographs demonstrated an absence of phalanges. The cause of the condition in this case remains unclear. To the author's knowledge, the congenital forelimb deformity described here is the first documented case in the Caprine species
