Abstract: 
Ultrasonography may be used for diagnosis of pelvic injuries, especially in the fractures as an alternative to the invasive and difficult technique of pelvic radiography in horse. A castrated horse with the history of one year lameness in the right hind limb, trauma and the presence of previous skin wound in the right coxae was referred. Lameness was mostly evident in gallop. Lameness was not completely removed with analgesic drugs. Nerve block examination revealed the pain in right pelvic region. Ultrasonography of right pelvic bones was achieved by using 2-5 MHZ convex probe, and ultrasonograms of the bony structures were obtained. Discontinuity in the normal echogenic surface of the caudal and lateral iliac wing, close to the iliac body was observed while a 7 mm gap was evident. Hypoechoic area within the muscle around the discontinuity was seen which could be due to hematoma. Ultrasonographic findings were the typical signs of iliac wing fracture. This is the first report of pelvic bone fracture diagnosis using Ultrasonography in Iran. Radiography may be used whenever Ultrasonography can not detect the bone lesions.
