Malignant ameloblastic fibro-odontoma in a Collie (case report)
An old dog which is presented with a swelling of the face - the first differential diagnosis is without doubt a teeth problem, the second epulis. But both is not the case: it is a highly malignant tumor which already metastatasized in various organs. A very informative case report from Japan!

An 11-year-old male Collie was presented with a swelling of the face caused by tumor masses arising from the gingiva.

Postmortem examination revealed metastases to the lymph nodes, lung, liver, and orbital cavity. Histologically, the tumor represented a combination of fibrosarcomatous proliferation, pulpal mesenchyme, and undifferentiated odontogenic epithelium, with a follicular or plexiform growth pattern.

In addition, the follicular areas of the tumor showed a biphasic character, and there were numerous apoptotic cells in plexiform areas.

Furthermore, acidophilic material resembling dysplastic dentine or enamel matrix was observed in the metastatic lesion in the lung.

Based on the histological characters, the present case was diagnosed as malignant ameloblastic fibro-odontoma.

This study is the first known description of a possible malignant ameloblastic fibro-odontoma in a dog with metastasis to distant organs.

SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE

Computed tomographic arthrography of the canine shoulder joint members
The aim of this retrospective, methods comparison study was to assess the diagnostic utility of computed tomographic arthrography in the assessment of various intraarticular shoulder pathologies in dogs in comparison with survey computed tomography (CT), using arthroscopic examination as the reference standard. Computed tomography, computed tomographic arthrography, and arthroscopic findings of 46 scapulohumeral joints of dogs with forelimb lameness were reviewed retrospectively.
