Goal: To investigate the incidence of genital tumours in cattle referred to the Clinic between 2016 and 2019 and to describe the outcome after surgical tumour resection. Materials and Methods: All cattle with a confirmed diagnosis of genital tumour (n = 3) were included in the study. Breed, age, tumour localisation and type of treatment were considered. Telephone interviews were used to ask owners about integration of the cows into the herd after discharge, survival, reason for leaving the herd, wound complications and tumour recurrence. Results: Three genital tumours including vaginal fibrosarcoma, vaginal leiomyosarcoma and luteoma were diagnosed. Tumour recurrence or metastasis did not occur. Conclusions: Tumour resection was successful in all three cases. To our knowledge, this is the first clinical description of a cow with luteoma.
