Abstract:
Leiomyoma along with leiomyosarcoma is the most common mesenchymal tumor of the bladder of the dogs. Together they account for 12 % of all primary bladder tumors. Often located in the trigone of the bladder, leiomyoma is still rarely diagnosed in domestic dogs. Most patients present with a history of hematuria, dysuria, and incontinence. A 10-year-old non-descriptive dog presented with the clinical signs of inappetence, abdominal distension, dysuria and constipation was brought to Madras Veterinary College. Hematobiochemical analysis revealed neutrophilia, increased alanine phosphatase, BUN, creatinine values, altered calcium phosphorous ratio and marginal thrombocytopenia. Survey and contrast radiography of the abdomen and thorax were revealed an intraluminal radiolucent mass in the bladder. Ultrasonography was performed to ascertain the location of mass and absence of any other deformities. An exploratory laparotomy followed by partial cystectomy was performed following excision of the mass. Histopathology revealed leiomyoma of the bladder. The dog had an uneventful recovery following periodic post operative management.
