A 25-month-old female crossbred cow presented with astasia, emaciation, and stunted growth. Macroscopic examination revealed a large mass in the abdominal cavity, approximately 100 × 30 × 30 cm. Microscopic examination revealed that the mass consisted of multilobular mature and immature cartilaginous matrices with chondrocytic cells, surrounded by spindle to pleomorphic mesenchymal tumor cells. The cartilaginous matrices consisted of hyaline and elastic cartilages, as confirmed with Azan stain, and Victoria Blue and Van Gieson stain. Immunohistochemistry revealed that the chondrocytic and mesenchymal cells both expressed S-100. The tumor was diagnosed as an extraskeletal chondrosarcoma in the abdominal cavity of this cow.
