- A pericardial myxoid liposarcoma was diagnosed in a common eland (Taurotragus oryx) based on gross, microscopical and immunohistochemical findings. The pericardial and epicardial tissues were soft and uniformly thickened. Microscopically, the neoplastic mass consisted of stellate cells embedded in a myxoid matrix. These cells contained cytoplasmic vacuoles stained by oil red O. Immunohistochemical analysis showed the neoplastic cells to express vimentin and S-100.
