Methai A, M Shiju Simon, G Vijayakumar and N Pazhanivel
Three intact male dogs (Spitz, Non-descript and Doberman) age around eight to nine years old were presented with the history of alopecia and progressive swelling of the right inguinal region since five months. Physical examination revealed all the vital parameter were within the normal range. The owner also reported that all dogs had unilateral cryptorchid on its right side since birth. Palpation revealed presence of one testis in the scrotal sac and masses were in the inguinal region. The mass was gray in colour and firm in consistency. No pain was evinced on palpation. The mammary gland and the nipple were enlarged and generalized skin and hair deformities were observed. Surgical correction was resorted to under general anaesthesia and the mass was resected en-block with orchiectomy. On histopathological examination, the mass was confirmed as seminoma. All the animal had an uneventful recovery.
