Abstract:

A8--year-old intact male dog was brought to Madras Veterinary College Teaching Hospital with a history of progressive ulcerative mass at the left periorbital area for the past 3 months. Haemato-biochemical analysis was done, which revealed thrombocytopenia, neutrophilia shift to left and a marginal increase in ALP levels. Absence of metastasis and bony involvement were observed on plain radiograph. Corneal swab and a fine needle biopsy were done to rule out ophthalmic health and nature of tumor cells if any, which revealed squamous cell carcinoma. Since the mass was extensive routine excision would result in a wide defect to be opposed by standard suturing technique hence a transposition skin flap was performed. The animal had an uneventful recovery.
