Hemangiosarcoma with Widespread Metastasis that Originated on the Metatarsal
Pad of a Java Sparrow (Padda oryzivora)

Yumiko NAKANO and Yumi UNE (pp. 621- 623)
A 5-year-old male Java sparrow (Padda oryzivora) was examined because of the appearance of a purple spot approximately 1 mm in diameter on the right metatarsal pad (inset:arrow).

Seven months later, the spot spread to the entire right leg (arrows), and metastasized to kidney and liver. The diagnosis is hemangiosarcoma.
