MIRANDA, F.G. et al. Ultrasonography and theloscopy for the diagnosis of obstructive fibrosis in the Fürstenberg venous ring in the four quarters of the udder of a cow: a case report. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.5, pp.1125-1129. ISSN 1678-4162.

We report an unusual case of obstructive fibrosis of the venous ring of Fürstenberg in all four quarters of the udder of a cow of the Girolando breed (3/8 Gir and 5/8 Dutch). The information was obtained through a review of medical records, anamnesis, and imaging methods such as theloscopy and ultrasonography. Histopathological analysis provided a definitive diagnosis.

Keywords : Girolando; teats; endoscopy; ultrasound.
