Heterotopic ossification (HO) is the formation of mature histologically indistinguishable lamella bone in soft tissues which normally exhibits no properties of ossification. HO does not grow out of bone, is not connected to periosteum and is not formed intra-articularly (Maheswarappa et al., 2004). We report here, the occurrence of a heterotopic bone in the right atrial wall in suspected case of canine leptospirosis.
