Malignant fibrous histiocytoma in a puppy

Veterinary Record 140(9): 234-235

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma in a puppy

A male cross bred puppy (4.5 months old) was examined for a fistula surrounded by a large (4 x 2.5 x 2.2 cm), firm, haemorrhagic, subcutaneous mass overlying the thoracic inlet with deep dermal, subcutaneous and muscular infiltration. The mass was excised. Immunohistochemical examination showed that tumour cells were positive for alpha-1-antitrypsin and alpha-1-antichymotrypsin and negative for S-100 protein; this excluded histiocyte or macrophage tumours from the diagnosis.
