|A 13-year-old dog was presented with clinical signs of anemia, vomiting, weight loss, and progressive abdominal distension.
Abdominal ultrasonography and radiography revealed a large mass, which was removed surgically.
Cytologic and histologic evaluation of the mass revealed a mixture of fat and hematopoietic tissue, consistent with a splenic myelolipoma.
