Abstract

The purpose of this study is to present an intra-abdominal fibrosarcoma in a canine and its histopathological findings. An eight years old female german shepherd was brought to department of Veterinary Clinical Complex, LUVAS, Hisar. The dog was anorectic with dull and depressed condition. Physical examination showed pale mucous membranes and distended abdomen. There was decrease in haemoglobin progressively. On Palpation of the abdomen a painless mass of hard consistency and irregular surface was felt. Serum biochemical abnormalities included increased SGOT, SGPT and alkaline phosphatise but plasma total protein, globulin and albumin was within normal range. The case was diagnosed with the help of radiography and ultrasonography. Thus, an exploratory laparotomy was performed, identifying a multinodular mass in the omentum and mesentery attached to a portion of the stomach and small intestine. An eight kilogram firm mass with irregular surface and great vascularisation was excised. On histopathology, the tumourous mass was found to be fibrosarcoma characterized by spindle shaped neoplastic cells arranged in interwoven pattern and presence of mitotic figures.
