Lingual haemangiosarcoma in a crossbred dog.

Owen LJ, Grierson JM, Patterson-Kane JC, Baines SJ - Ir Vet J (2006)

Bottom Line: An eight-year-old, male neutered, crossbred dog was presented for investigation of a lingual mass of four months duration.Oral examination revealed a 7 cm × 5 cm soft, fluctuant mass at the caudal aspect of the tongue.Lingual haemangiosarcoma was diagnosed on histopathological examination of multiple biopsy samples, with confirmation of the vascular endothelial origin of tumour cells by positive immunolabelling for factor VIII-related antigen.

ABSTRACT
An eight-year-old, male neutered, crossbred dog was presented for investigation of a lingual mass of four months duration. Oral examination revealed a 7 cm × 5 cm soft, fluctuant mass at the caudal aspect of the tongue. Ultrasound examination of the mass demonstrated mixed echogenicity, with cavitations containing hypoechoic and anechoic regions. Lingual haemangiosarcoma was diagnosed on histopathological examination of multiple biopsy samples, with confirmation of the vascular endothelial origin of tumour cells by positive immunolabelling for factor VIII-related antigen.

Sagittal image of part of the mass acquired via a ventral approach, with the transducer applied on the skin from the ventral aspect at the level of the base of the tongue (between callipers). The cavities containing echogenic material are visible within the mass (asterisks).

Figure 1: Sagittal image of part of the mass acquired via a ventral approach, with the transducer applied on the skin from the ventral aspect at the level of the base of the tongue (between callipers). The cavities containing echogenic material are visible within the mass (asterisks).

Mentions: Ultrasound examination of the tongue revealed a mass of mixed echogenicity, with cavitations containing hypoechoic/anechoic regions (Figure 1). The mass extended rostrally from the base of the tongue and measured 7.5 cm by 4.9 cm. It was well vascularised and well marginated and evidence of foreign material was not seen. There was no evidence of invasion of the mass into local soft tissues. Lateral and dorsoventral radiographs of the skull revealed a localised, homogenous, poorly-demarcated soft tissue opacity in the oropharyngeal region. Bony abnormalities were not present.
