Abstract:

The radiographic features of a spontaneous, connective-tissue neoplasm, a myxosarcoma of the ilial region, were described in a young male rhesus monkey. The clinical course of the neoplasm was followed from initial discovery until euthanasia of the monkey. Initial radiographs showed an aggressive and highly destructive lesion of the right ilium, acetabulum and proximal ischium which progressed to involve the proximal femur, pelvic canal, and surrounding soft tissue. Radiographic differential diagnosis was discussed.
