In a necropsy of an four-year-old male mixed breed dog, the authors found a mycotic sinusitis. The histologic features of the tonsiles demonstrated multinucleated giant cells with refringente material. The primary cause was suspected to be a vegetal agent. The authors presented the case with images of macroscopic and microscopic lesions
The main feline infectious not zoonotic diseases include, among others, diseases of viral aetiology, including: - Feline panleukopenia caused by feline panleukopenia virus (FPV), from Parvoviridae family; - Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), caused by feline infectious peritonitis virus (FIPV), a biotype of feline coronavirus (FCoV), Coronaviridae family; - The feline retroviruses, feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency caused by feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), respectively, both from Retroviridae family. Nursing care is critical to the recovery of cats afected by these viruses and has to be adjusted, according to the disease in question but also to the individual case. In order to successfully meet this goal, veterinary nurses must have exact and precise knowledge about the virus, its behav...

Veterinary anatomical pathology is a medical specialty very similar to human anatomical pathology. This specialty consists in diagnosing diseases, based mostly on the gross and microscopic examination of organs and tissues, obtained by surgical procedure or necropsy It consists in the application of criteria based in the knowledge of the gross and histological lesions to obtain a final pathological diagnosis. The aim of this specific diagnosis is, generally, to find which disease affects the animal, if it is alive, or what caused its death. The main difficulties in veterinary pathological diagnosis are related to the various animal species a pathologist has to deal with, the use of exhaustive classifications of different types, the costs, the subjectivity, including disagreement between the clinical and pathologic diagnoses, and the...
Angiokeratoma is described by various authors as a rare variant of the hemangioma in the dog, characterised by a vascular component like all types of vascular neoplasms, but also by an epithelial component. A case of angiokeratoma is described in a male eight-year-old dog. The tumor was located in heavily pigmented skin on the anterior surface of the front limb and not in the more usual previously described locations - eyelid and conjunctiva. Microscopic examination revealed a well-circumscribed mass with irregular hyperplasia of the epidermis and dilated vascular spaces filled with blood in the superficial dermis
A profilaxia sanitária de algumas doenças infecto-contagiosas que afectam os ovinos recomenda a restrição da circulação de rebanhos, impondo também sérias restrições às transições de animais. Duas das doenças de maior importância sanitária em ovinos, quer pela sua elevada contagiosidade, quer pelas suas consequências na saúde animal são a Brucelose e a Agaláxia contagiosa. Destaca-se a Brucelose por ser considerada a maior Zoonose do mundo e pela incidência elevada quer na população ovina quer na população humana portuguesa e em especial a norte do Tejo. Ambas as doenças se traduzem por perdas económicas relevantes nos efectivos que atingem e ambas exigem um controlo preferencialmente do tipo profiláctico, uma vez que a sua terapia se revela ou de difícil execução ou economicamente impraticavel. Este controlo profiláctico acarreta medi...
A skin lesion from a 2,5 years male Perdigueiro, removed from the scapulo-humeral area of the left anterior limb, was submitted to the pathology service of the Escola Superior Agrária de Viseu. Macroscopicaly, the lesion corresponded to an ovoid and well-circunscribed mass, elevated above the skin surface, with 6,5x7,5x4cm. On cut section, a central cystic formation with fibrous capsule and several papillary growths that project into the lumen were observed. Four 3 m sections were processed for routine histopathological diagnosis. Microscopically, the central cyst was surrounded by areas of solid pattern, with numerous lobules subdivided by connective tissue stroma, and by intermingled areas of papillary growths. The cells in both the papillary proliferations and solid area were arranged in nests and cords. In terms of morphology, at ...
Background: Veterinary anatomical pathology is a medical specialty similar to human anatomical pathology, which aims to obtain a final pathological diagnosis, applying criteria based mostly in the knowledge of the gross and histological lesions. The main difficulties in veterinary pathological diagnosis are related to the various animal species a pathologist has to deal with, the use of exhaustive classifications of different types, the costs, the subjectivity and the urgency in issuing the report. So, the urgent need to compile all available information to obtain a diagnosis, in a short period of time, is the constant challenge placed to the professional experts in the area concerned. Methods: Authors propose a framework and a software system (which uses experience) that can be useful for diagnosis purposes. The framework is based o...
Veterinary Pathological Anatomy consists in the application of criteria based in the knowledge of the macroscopic and histological lesions to obtain a final pathological diagnosis. The aim of this specific diagnosis is, generally, to determine which disease affects the animal, in case of being alive, or what the cause of death in case it was death. Unlike human medicine, dedicated to a single specie, the Veterinary Medicine is dedicated to different animal species, usually grouped into specialties based in affinity of species (e.g. pets - dogs and cats, ruminants, exotic species, etc). Also pathological anatomy uses exhaustive classifications of different types (e.g. infectious diseases, metabolic diseases, endocrine diseases, neoplasm’s, etc.). So the urgent need to compile all available information to obtain a diagnosis, in a short ...
