Basaloid adenocarcinoma in a male dog
In veterinary practice, mammary gland neoplasms in bitches are very common. According to literature data and our observations, their incidence in male dogs is extremely low compared to female dogs. In most cases, these neoplasms are hormone-dependent. However, no receptors for oestrogen or progesterone are observed in the structure of basaloid adenocarcinomas. In such cases, conservative treatment does not result in desirable outcomes. The most effective method of treatmemnt is a surgical removal of the tumour. The present report describes a case of basaloid adenocarcinoma in a Dogue de Bordeaux.
