Background: Sinus adenocarcinomas of papillary pattern are neoplasms rarely described in dogs and most cases are characterized by slow growth, local invasion and rare cases of metastasis. Their characteristics are presence of glandular structures that may have papillary pattern, tubulo-papillary, acinar and mixed pattern. Approximately 80% of primary nasal tumors are malignant and adenocarcinomas are the most frequently histology type. This paper reports a case of papillary adenocarcinoma of nasal sinus in the dog, emphasizing the use of histochemical and immunohistochemical techniques to aiding for appropriate therapy.Case: A 14-year-old male Poodle dog, presenting seropurulent nasal discharge, frequent sneezing and an enlargement in the nasal region, was submitted to surgical excision of a tumor. Macroscopically, was observed fragment coated with soft hairy skin and shear blackish color, and some fragments associated with more firm tissues like cartilage and bone tissue. Tumor specimens were collected, fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin solution and embedded in paraffi n. Afterwards, 4 µm histological sections were obtained and stained with HE. For immunohistochemical analysis a biotin-peroxidase system was used and secondary antibodies were identifi ed using Advance HRP. CKAE1/AE3, CK34E12, SMA, E-cadherin, Cox-2, Ki-67 and Her-2 expression were evaluated. For CK AE1AE3
