Three types of odontogenic tumors have been described in Veterinary literature: fibromatous
epulis, ossifying epulis and acanthomatous epulis.
* The fibromatous
or proliferative variant is similar to the cellular variant, although collagen fibers are much more prominent in the fibromatous
Because stains for ana-plastic lymphoma kinase-1 and [beta]-catenin were negative in all the above subtypes, there seemed to be no correlation between testicular/paratesticular fibrous pseudotumour and inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour or fibromatosis seen in other organs.[sup.5] Historically, fibrous pseudotumours have been referred to by multiple names including fibromatous
periorchitis, nonspecific paratesticular fibrosis, nodular fibropseudotumour, reactive periorchitis, fibroma, fibrous pseudotumour, pseudofibromatous periorchitis, proliferative funiculitis and several others.[sup.2,5,6] However, because some lesions lack inflammatory component and are not nodular, the less specific term "fibrous pseudotumour" was preferred.[sup.5]
2) representing epidermal hyperplasia, acanthosis and hyperkeratosis along with down proliferation of retepegs, in 4 cases of teats and udder papillomas and only epidermal hyperplasia without any fibromatous
proliferation was observed in rest six (6) cases of teat papillomatosis bearing clinically ambiguous warts along with typical flat papilloma and atypical filliform papillomas.

Adamantinoma-Histogenesis and differentiation from the periodontal fibromatous
epulis and squamous cell carcinomas.
Instrumental staging evaluation (total body computed tomographic scan, magnetic resonance imaging) detected a slight enlargement of the uterine cervix and a fibromatous
uterus without evidence of lymphadenopathy or splenomegaly.
Tumors of the paratesticular region.
The tumor was called extracranial fibromatous
They are hard, white, predominantly solid fibromatous
tumour, within which are small glands or cysts containing clear fluid and sometimes having polypoid excrescences, occasionally bilateral.
