Neoplasia is more common in Panthera species than in other captive felids; in particular, tumors of the reproductive tract; and neoplasia was associated with increasing age [72]. Prolonged intra- abdominal testicular tissue predisposes animals to interstitial cell tumors, as seen in a polled goat with a DSD that developed bilateral interstitial cell tumors in malformed intra-abdominal testicular tissue [19]. ...
