Intestinal Mucinous Adenocarcinoma in a Dog (case report)
Chronic vomiting in an older dog with the presumed diagnosis intestinal neoplasia - this seems to be a `routine` case. But the laparatomy revealed surprising findings: an invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma affecting multiple organs. Very interesting case!

An 11-year-old, intact female Pekingese dog was presented because of chronic vomiting.

Clinical examination and diagnostic imaging suggested the presence of an intestinal mass. Laparotomy was performed, and a gelatinous effusion associated with a suspected jejunal neoplasm was found.

Accumulation of gelatinous material was grossly evident in several abdominal organs and parietal peritoneum.

Cytopathological smears from this material showed macrophages, reactive mesothelial cells, and spindle cells embedded in a mucinous basophilic background.

After spontaneous death, necropsy and histopathology were performed and showed the presence of an invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma with visceral and peritoneal metastases.

The clinicopathological findings of this case report closely resemble those reported in human cases of pseudomyxoma peritonei.

Determining the origin of hepatic masses in dogs by CTmembers
Can CT scans diagnose the anatomical origin of hepatic masses? A very interesting question! The objective of this study was to identify CT features of canine hepatic masses that could be used to determine their divisional or lobar origin.
