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.

Figure 3: The extent of the mass (asterisk) revealed under general anaesthesia via oral examination and protrusion of the tongue.

Mentions: A full oral examination under general anaesthesia did not reveal obvious dental or bony abnormalities, or invasion of soft tissue structures. On palpation, the mass was soft and fluctuant and was continuous with the tissue of the tongue in texture and colour (Figures 2 and 3). At surgery, multiple incisional biopsy specimens were taken from the mass via a single incision, from both superficial and deep areas. This incision into the mass confirmed the cavitatory nature.
