A female buffalo of age eight years with a history of growth in the right eye close to the medial canthus engaging the nictitating membrane was presented to TVCC, DUVASU Mathura. The fine needle aspiration cytology of outgrowth was carried out to interpret the cytological details. The cytological examination revealed squamous epithelial cells with anisocytosis, anisokaryosis, and prominent nucleoli. The mass was excised for histopathology. The histopathological study showed the presence of nests of squamous epithelial cells extending into the dermis. The neoplastic cells were large with eosinophilic cytoplasm and a large vesicular nucleus. Based on the above details the mass was diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
