The articlepresents the materials of the pathologic anatomical dissection and histologicalexamination of the tissues and organs of the domestic horse (Equus feruscaballus), the Friesian breed, as well as materials from the medical history. Anew nosology for this species and breed was first detected in the studiedanimal, namely, a chronic inflammatory disease of the thyroid gland ofautoimmune genesis in the hyperthyroid stage, which caused the development ofsystemic idiopathic fibrosis. The previously detected nosology was notdetected, and also was not described in Russian and foreign literary sources. Thearticle presents materials from the history of the disease with an assessmentof the clinical condition of the animal. A description of the pathological andmorphological changes in the tissues of the thyroid gland with detectedautoimmune thyroiditis, and associated pathological processes in the organs andtissues of the studied animal, as well as a description of the conditionassociated with thyroiditis, namely, systemic idiopathic fibrosis. Along withthis, the peculiarities of the metabolic serum profile of the enzymes,substrates and minerals are presented, the endocrine status of the thyroidgland is assessed by the content of total thyroxin (tT4) and totaltriiodothyronine (tT3), the content of which was 184.0 nmol/l and 7,9 nmol/l,respectively, as well as data indicating the presence of an autoimmune processin relation to thyroid-type antigens, namely, the level of antibodies tothyroglobulin and antibodies to thyroperoxidase, whose content is set 9.7 IU/mland 98 IU/ml, respectively.
