The unexpected guest. Blood smears are all the same and reading them is boring? Not always 😎 Look at this case I recently had from a dog with a clinical history of a large solid mass on R hindlimb removed one year ago (and not submitted for histopathology 😕) and recently recurred. Can you spot those guys in the peripheral blood? They are granulated mast cells and can be seen in both monolayer area and feathered edge of the blood smear. If you look at the Sysmex XT‐2000iV scattergrams, you can see there is no clear separation between all leukocytes populations and the analyser did not provide a complete leukocyte differential count. Circulating mast cells (mastocythemia) can be seen in both reactive (particularly severe inflammation), allergic and neoplastic conditions, including lymphoma and mast cell tumors. The latter was confirmed by FNA of the recurred hindlimb mass 🔬#veterinaryhematology #VeterinaryCytology ... See MoreSee Less

Ora mass in an adult dog. The sample contains a main population of spindle cells with moderate degree of atypia. Despite resembling a sarcoma, this is an poorly melanotic melanoma. Note the presence of small amounts of intracytoplasmic melanin pigment in few cells. Neoplastic melanocytes may appear pleomorphic from cuboidal, polygonal, spindle or round. #VeterinaryCytology #veterinaryoncology #clinpath #veterinary #veterinarymedicine #veterinarytechnician #veterinarylife #oncologiaveterinaria #melanoma #clinpathresident #microscope #microscopy #medicinaveterinária ...
