ABSTRACT

In this communication, we aimed to describe a case of endocardial fibroelastosis in a Llama cria. Macroscopic examination revealed that the endocardial tissue of the heart had a gray-white appearance. However, cardiovascular malformations and myocardial necrosis/injury were not seen. Microscopic examination of the heart showed severe endocardial thickening due to the proliferation of elastic and collagen fibres.
Key words: Endocardium, fibroelastosis, heart, histopathology, llamawere
