A pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) was referred to the clinic of the Department of Surgery in the Veterinary Faculty of İstanbul University, with the complaint of swelling in the abdomen. Radiography revealed a tumoral mass in the gizzard and the surgical removal of the tumoral mass was performed. The biopsy specimen was submitted to the Department of Pathology. After being processed routinely, specimens were stained with hematoxylin and eosin and Masson trichrome stains. Based on the histopathological findings, the tumor was diagnosed as chondrosarcoma.
