Abstract: Ocular squamous cell carcinoma is an economically important neoplasm in large animals. The economic impact includes carcass condemnations, production losses, treatment expenditure and management costs (Gharagozlou, 2007). The etiology of the disease is multifactorial. There is a predisposition towards cattle with nonpigmented eyelids and conjunctiva. Prolonged exposure to sunlight (ultraviolet light) seems to be a driving force for the disease. The tumour in all species develops through a series of premalignant stages, called epidermal plaques and papillomas, before proceeding over months or years to carcinoma in situ and to invasive carcinoma (Wilcock, 1993). Among 2003 bovine neoplasms in India, 42 per cent were diagnosed as carcinoma of the eye (Chandrasekharan and Sasthy, 1954).Various treatment protocols have been formulated to treat and prevent the recurrence of ocular squamous cell carcinoma in cattle; radical resection of the tumour mass by surgery has been reported to be more successful.
