Abstract

A blind white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), approximately 7 months of age, was found to have multiple congenital ocular abnormalities. Histopathologic examination of the eyes revealed bilateral microphthalmia, intraocular lacrimal gland tissue, intraocular cartilage, retinal dysplasia and epithelialization of the anterior chamber. This appears to be the first reported instance of intraocular lacrimal gland tissue in a species other than man and the first description of intraocular cartilage or retinal dysplasia occurring in a deer. Necropsy examination did not reveal other systemic abnormalities.
