Histopathology: This mass was consisted of round to spindle tumor cel s containing with various amount of melanin pigment. AZEC 2013, Fukuoka

Human: Melanoma is a malignant neoplasm of melanocytes. Melanocytes produce the brown pigment called as melanin. Melanoma predominantly occur in the skin, but are also found in any part of the body that contains melanocytes. If skin melanoma is found early, and if it is completely removed surgically, then the chanc of cure is high. Veterinary field: Melanomas are relatively common in dog, horse, and certain breeds of swine, but less frequent in cattle and goats, and quite rare in cats and sheep. Melanomas are extremely rare in avian species. There are previous reports in fowls (1919, 1928, 1929 and 1932) emerald duck (1978), budgerigar (1991), macaroni penguin, red-tailed hawk (1996), and Humboldt penguin (1998 and 2003). This is the first case report of melanoma in king penguin as AZEC 2013, Fukuoka In the necropsy record in Tennoji Zoo, there is no description of specific changes including this tumor. Therefore, metastasis is unclear. Since the tumor located in the deep throat, it could not be find during the clinical phase and also the brief necropsy especial y focused on the body cavity. Osaka Municipal Tennoji Zoological Gardens Melanoma was found out during the skinning at the museum.
