Three visible lesions were examined from two
specimens of southern bluefin tuna. The lesions
were examined grossly and two were identified as
lipomas, the third bore similarities to a schwannoma.
Histopathology confirmed that two consisted
of mature adipocytes consistent with a
diagnosis of lipoma. The third lesion consisted of
spindle cells in Antoni A and B patterns and was
tentatively diagnosed as a malignant schwannoma.
Immunohistochemistry identified both S100 and
glial fibrillary acid protein expression within the
lesion, which, together with the histopathological
appearance, is consistent with a diagnosis of
