Description

Abstract: Osteosarcoma is the most common bone tumor in dogs. The usual sites are the axial and the appendicular skeleton. However, the involvement of the paranasal sinuses and the nasal cavity is considered extremely rare. The present study describes a six-year-old, female, mongrel dog with a mass located in the right nasal cavity and 90-days of evolution. Radiographic, rhinoscopy and computed tomography findings suggested the presence of an intranasal tumor. The histopathological examination associated with clinical and imaging findings allowed to define the presence of osteosarcoma in the nasal cavity. The patient had an overall survival time of 12 months after diagnosis. Keywords: Bone tumor, dog, neoplasia, veterinary pathology.
