Necropsy finding


During necropsy , ruptured adenomas were found in a friend's horse that was euthanized, due to infection that originated with a  wound in her mouth. She had cushings ; I know that her ACTH had never tested within the normal range. Are  ruptured tumors more common in horses with uncontrolled cushings ?

Assuming you mean pituitary adenomas, yes they probably are more prone to eventually rupture because that comes with large size.
