A 9 year old mare presented to be visited with haemorragic vaginal discharge, that had been going on for about 1 week. After an accurate clinical exam, the origin of the discharge was discovered: an ulceration of some large veinous vessels, found on a residual of hymen. The ulceration and thrombosis of large varicous veins could be one of the various causes responsible for such discharge. However, the localization on the residual of the hymen is an unusual and rarely reported site for such phenomenon to occur, while more commonly it is the dorsal portion of the vagina to be involved. We hence discuss the differential diagnosis of such symptoms, and possible aetiologies and predisposing factors that lead to such vascular abnormality, as well as discussing possible treatments.

Abstract

A 9 year old mare presented to be visited with haemorragic vaginal discharge, that had been going on for about 1 week. After an accurate clinical exam, the origin of the discharge was discovered: an ulceration of some large veinous vessels, found on a residual of hymen. The ulceration and thrombosis of large varicous veins could be one of the various causes responsible for such discharge. However, the localization on the residual of the hymen is an unusual and rarely reported site for such phenomenon to occur, while more commonly it is the dorsal portion of the vagina to be involved. We hence discuss the differential diagnosis of such symptoms, and possible aetiologies and predisposing factors that lead to such vascular abnormality, as well as discussing possible treatments.
