Abstract: An adult Carneau White Pigeon with a large mass (swelling) on its right shank (proximal region) was referred to the Surgery and Radiology unit of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital University of Maiduguri. A plain radiograph of the affected limb revealed a circumscribed noninvasive mass. Histopathology revealed hemangioma. Hemangioma rarely occurs in pigeon compared to other bird species. Differential leukocyte count showed slightly elevated lymphocytes level. Surgical intervention using local anesthesia (Bupivacaine) was carried out. Skin was sutured using surgical gut yielding a desirable result, recovery was fast and uneventful.
