Abstract:

Ocular TVT was encountered in four dogs along with multilobulated masses on the external genitalia, and subcutaneous tissues. The haematobiochemical changes were within the normal range. FNAC and histopathological examination were performed. Cytological smears taken from the masses showed moderate to high cellularity with discrete cells. Histopathologically, neoplastic cells were seen arranged as large sheets with thin delicate strands of fibrous stroma. The surface epithelium showed thinning due to compression of tumour. Based on cytological and histopathological examination it was confirmed as Transmissible Venereal Tumour (TVT). It was treated with Vincristine @ 0.025 mg/kg/b.wt. intravenously.
