Incisional iris biopsy was performed for diagnosis of an unusual opaque white mass protruding from the right ventrolateral iris of a 10-year-old neutered male Great Dane dog. Histopathology revealed a diagnosis of bone formation within otherwise normal iris tissue. No underlying etiology was identified. Osseous metaplasia or heterotopic bone formation may be an additional differential diagnosis for a nonneoplastic mass in the eye of a dog.
