First diagnosed extranodal conjunctival Hodgkin`s-like lymphoma in a cat
A very interesting case report starting with a patient showing the common and non-specific clinical sign conjunctivitis. But it was only unilateral and already lasting for 4 months - and the popliteal lymph node was swollen...

A seven-year-old female spayed Domestic Short-haired cat was brought for examination following a four-month history of conjunctivitis in the right eye.

The superior palpebral conjunctiva was diffusely swollen and firm, displacing the right globe ventrally and preventing full closure of the eyelids.

The right popliteal lymph node was enlarged as were several other peripheral lymph nodes.

An incisional biopsy of the conjunctival swelling revealed a lymphoid neoplasm, the cellular make up of which suggested features of feline Hodgkin`s-like lymphoma.

Although the neoplasm was poorly responsive to standard chemotherapeutic protocols for lymphoma, radiation therapy rapidly reduced its size.

Three years following the initial diagnosis, there has been no recurrence of the conjunctival neoplasm.

To the authors` knowledge, there are no previous reports of extranodal or adnexal (conjunctiva, eyelid, orbit) Hodgkin`s-like lymphoma in the veterinary literature.

Novel intratumoral therapy in canine transmissible venereal tumour
Canine transmissible venereal tumour (CTVT) is a naturally occurring contagious neoplasm of dogs located mainly on the external genitalia of both sexes. The course of vincristine chemotherapy, the most effective and practical therapy, is affected by the immune status of the host. The aim was to investigate recombinant human interferon alpha‐2a (rhIFNα‐2a) and vincristine for treatment of CTVT.
