AJADI, A. Temitope; ANTIA, E. Richard  and  AKANG, E. Effiong. Cystadenocarcinoma Arising from Ovary in a Three Year Old Doberman Bitch. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.3, pp.988-991. ISSN 0717-9502.

A three- year- old Doberman was presented with complaint of lethargy and weight- loss. Physical examination revealed a mass in the right abdomen. Laboratory abnormalities included anaemia, azotaemia and metabolic acidosis. Sonogram of the mass was an anaechoic area surrounded by hypoechoic tissue. The mass was located between the right kidney and ovary and showed papillary and tubular pattern of cystadenocarcinoma. Nephroureterectomy and ovariohysterectomy was performed; however bitch was euthanized owing to poor improvement, while necropsy of the left kidney revealed an end-stage kidney. It was concluded that the cystadenocarcinoma must have arisen secondary to a primary ovarian adenocarcinoma through stromal invasion.
