Apparently, as seen in the present case, myxoma and myxosarcoma have low metastatic potential in birds (LATIMER, 1994).
The mass was surgically debulked and histopathologically described as a myxosarcoma. Surgical dehiscence and concurrent local tumor regrowth, with no evidence of metastasis, occurred over the subsequent 3 months, necessitating 2 additional surgical procedures to close the wound.

On histopathologic evaluation, the mass was characterized as a myxosarcoma (Fig 2).
Myxosarcoma is an uncommon tumor of mesenchymal origin that may be pseudoencapsulated with a soft to firm texture.
These characteristics can be found in other types of mesenchymal neoplasms such as myxosarcomas, hemangiosarcomas, and liposarcomas.
