Abstract:
A 5- year old English Mastiff male dog weighing around 56 Kg was brought to the Madras Veterinary College Teaching Hospital with a history of hyperpigmentation in the ventral abdomen and pruritus. Clinical examination revealed generalized lymphadenopathy. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) was suggestive of lymphoma. Abdominal ultrasonography showed lymphadenopathy of the mesenteric, inguinal and colonic lymph nodes. Immunohistochemistry differentiated it as T cell lymphoma. PCR for antigen receptor rearrangement (PARR) assay evaluated it as of Ig G lineage confirmative for Tcell lymphoma. Still further confirmed by flow cytometry (FC) of FNAC and peripheral blood samples. The dog was treated with CHOP therapy protocol.
