Lipoblastoma is a rare benign tumor arising from embryonic white fat and occurs exclusively in infants and children. This neoplasia has an excellent prognosis but its growth rate can be rapid and reach a large size. In veterinary literature lipoblastoma has been reported only in a new born (2 day old) male calf. This case report describes the clinical, histochemical and immunohistochemical features of a lipoblastoma in a dog. The dog was followed up for 20 months after surgery and found to be healthy with no signs of recurrence.
