Is Time the Best Treatment for Some Equine Sarcoids?

Is Time the Best Treatment for Some Equine Sarcoids?

Researchers determined that 83% of the 35 sarcoid cases with information on whether they’d received treatment had resolved spontaneously.

Sarcoids are unsightly but benign skin tumors that present a real treatment challenge for owners and veterinarians. Despite years of research and a wide variety of treatments, few methods have proven successful in eliminating sarcoids. But what if we just leave them alone?

In a long-term study, Swiss researchers found that nearly half the small sarcoid tumors detected on their 3-year-old study horses regressed on their own over several years. Many others resolved with minimally invasive treatment methods.

“Our longitudinal study showed that it’s difficult to pronounce a prognosis on sarcoids,” said Fanny Berruex, DrMedVet., of the Swiss Institute of Equine Medicine, Agroscope, and the University of Bern Veterinary School. “However, the good news is that we found that 62% of the cases in our study had resolved within five years and, actually, most of those had resolved spontaneously, without any treatment at all.”

Berruex presented her work at the 2017 Swiss Equine Research Day, held earlier this year in Avenches.

Picking up on a previous sarcoid study in Franche-Montagne horses, the official breed of the Swiss National Stud, by Mirjam Mele in 2004, Berruex and colleagues followed up on the study horses five years later. They noted that 61 horses in the prior study had been diagnosed with sarcoids at the time; in the newer study, which included a questionnaire and a clinical exam, only 23 of the horses still had sarcoids after half a decade.

Of the 23 with sarcoids, six had received treatment (surgery or medicine). Two of those horses showed partial regression, while only four had a more advanced stage of sarcoid disease, with larger, more aggressively growing tumors, she said.

Among the 17 that were not treated, six had experienced a partial regression, eight were worse, and three stayed the same.

Meanwhile, 38 of the horses had become free of sarcoids, Berruex said. Six of those had been treated and 29 had not been treated. (For three horses, the researchers could not obtain information about whether they had been treated.) In their study, 83% of the 35 resolved cases (with known information) had resolved spontaneously.

“This contradicts the idea that spontaneous resolution of sarcoids is rare,” she said. “It actually may be more common then we thought, particularly when dealing with small sarcoids representing mild manifestations of disease in young horses.”

Depending upon the sarcoid’s location, however, it might not be practical to leave it without treatment. Work with your veterinarian to determine the best treatment option for your horse’s sarcoids.
