Abstract

Despite the fact that mast cell tumours (MCT) are one of the most common neoplasms in dogs there is only one published case of MCT within a lipoma. In this case, in 11-years old female toy poodle was observed the presence of a well-demarcated, freely movable, softy mass on the chest. Histological examination showed a well-circumscribed mass consisted of mature adipocytes and multiple foci of round cells with granulated cytoplasm between adipocytes. Toluidine blue staining demonstrated metachromatic granules in the cytoplasm of mast cells.
