Metastasised uterine tumour

This is a post-mortem image of the abdominal contents of an aggressive uterine tumour. The tumour was confirmed in the living rabbit by exploratory laparotomy. The uterus is in the lower part of the picture. The larger mass of metastasised (spread) tumour is in the upper half. There were other small tumours throughout the peritoneal cavity. The rabbit was euthanased during surgery which is why the body can be seen through the semi-transparent surgical drape.
