A 5-year-old Quarter Horse mare was examined because of a 6-month history of quidding and nasal discharge that contained feed material. Physical examination revealed weight loss and dorsal displacement of the soft palate, caused by a soft tissue mass located at the dorsal aspect of the base of the tongue. Surgical resection of the mass was successfully performed through an oral approach. The histopathologic diagnosis was rhabdomyosarcoma.
