A pluriparous crossbred cow about 9 years of age was presented to veterinary clinics, C.V.A.Sc., GBPUA&T, Pantnagar with the history of large tumor like growth in the vagina which was frequently seen outside of vulvar lips along with recurrent prolapse of vagina and cervical rings, repeat breeding. Per-rectal examination revealed presence of multiple cysts on both the ovaries which were confirmed as follicular cysts by ultrasonography later on. Ultrasonographic examination of tumor like mass showed hyperechogenicity of several layers of vagina confirming vaginal hyperplasia. The case was confirmed as vaginal hyperplasia with possible link to cystic ovarian degeneration (COD) and managed through surgical intervention under caudal epidural anaesthesia involving excision of hyperplastic mass protruding and hanging from vaginal floor and repositioned through episiotomy. Human chorionic gonadotropin @ 4500 IU I/M was given to address the presence of follicular cyst resulting into removal of source of continuous vaginal epithelial stimulation. Antibiotics and other supportive treatments for 5 days with local dressing lead to successful recovery of the case.
