|Abstract:||An aged miniature pony was referred for chronic recurrent oesophageal obstruction. Endoscopic examination demonstrated distal oesophageal constriction and radiography confirmed an irregular soft tissue mass in the region of the distal intrathoracic oesophagus. The pony was subjected to euthanasia and post mortem examination confirmed squamous cell carcinoma of the distal oesophagus and stomach. Oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma is a rare condition in horses, but should be considered as a differential diagnosis in cases of chronic recurrent obstruction, particularly in older horses.|
