RAMIREZ ROMERO, Rafael; GARCIA DE JALON CIERCOLES, José Antonio; NEVAREZ GARZA, Alicia Magdalena e RODRIGUEZ TOVAR, Luis Edgar. Transmissible venereal tumor with metastasis to a spleen hemangioma in a bitch. Vet. Méx [online]. 2010, vol.41, n.4, pp. 305-312. ISSN 0301-5092.
This report describes a case of transmissible venereal tumor (TVT) with metástasis to spleen in areas previously affected with a hemangioma in an adult mongrel stray bitch. In addition, the animal had seborrheic dermatitis associated with demodicosis, suggesting a deficient immune response. In Mexico, TVT is a common entity; however, metastases to internal organs are extremely rare. This is the first report of metastasis of TVT to an internal organ with a previous established tumour.
