Abstract

An adenoma of the thyroid of the brackish water sheepshead minnow (Cyprinodon variegatus) appeared after the fish had been held in a saltwater aquarium with other fish. The tumor appeared to be well delineated grossly. Microscopically, the tumor was invasive into adjacent gill tissues but was without mitotic figures.
