NEWELL-FUGATE, A  y  LANE, E. Periaortic haemangiosarcoma in an African wild dog (Lycaon pictus). J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2009, vol.80, n.2, pp.108-110. ISSN 2224-9435.

A 9-year-old apparently healthy male African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) was found dead in its enclosure at the De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Centre. Necropsy revealed a pericardium distended by approximately 250 ml of thick blood. A soft, red, lobulated mass was attached to the periaortic fat between the level of the aortic valves and the pericardial reflection. Histologically, the mass was consistent with a haemangiosarcoma. Other findings in the heart included mild to moderate ventricular hypertrophy and moderate, acute perivascular myocardial necrosis. Sudden death was attributed to acute heart failure precipitated by cardiac tamponade.

Palabras clave : African wild dog (Lycaon pictus); cardiac tamponade; heart failure; haemangio-sarcoma; pericardium; ventricular hypertrophy.
