Abstract

A tumor structure, 2 x 2.5 x 0.7 cm in size, was observed on the top of a goldfish's (Carassius auratus) head. On histopathological examination of the tumor tissue, palisadic fusiform smooth muscle cells constituting a focal whirling pattern were seen. No mitosis was observed in the cells. In conclusion, the conventional staining results suggested that the tumor was leiomyoma.
