Mast cell tumor is the most common skin tumor in dogs. Due to mast cell proliferation, the affected animals present clinical symptoms compatible with the release of excess histamine granules present inside these cells leading to changes in the gastrointestinal and vascular tracts with the possibility of causing anaphylactic shock. The diagnosis is made by cytopathological analysis and classified by means of histopathology. Treatment is based on staging, surgical exeresis with antineoplastic chemotherapy and drug treatment to inhibit the effects of histamine release. A dog of 14 years old of Boxer breed was attend complaining of nodulation in the testicular bag with a two month evolution. Animal was diagnosed with mast cell tumor. Treatment was instituted by surgical excision and due to the metastatic possibility in regional lymph node, antineoplastic and drug therapy was indicated, which was not successful due of the person responsible non-adherence to the treatment. Mast cell tumor classified as high grade after histopathological analysis. Animal survived for two months after diagnosis of the disease. Due to the high grade of neoplastic presentation and difficulty in treatment, the animal had low survival, corroborating with data described in the literature regarding the poor prognosis of this tumor type.(AU)
