Resumen

MAJIE, Arnab K; MONDAL, Parswanath; GHOSH, Swapan K  y  BANERJEE, Dayanarayan. Cutaneous Adenocarcinoma of sebaceous gland in a captive male jaguar (Panthera onca): A case report. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2014, vol.85, n.1, pp. 01-03. ISSN 2224-9435.

High incidence of neoplasia in captive jaguar (Panthera onca) has been recorded but there have been no reports of cutaneous adenocarcinoma of the sebaceous gland. A high incidence of neoplasia has been detected in captive jaguars, possibly associated with longevity and husbandry practices in captivity. Neoplasm is a major cause of mortality in jaguar. Tumours of sebaceous gland are common in older domestic felids. A case of cutaneous adenocarcinoma of the sebaceous gland was diagnosed in a male captive jaguar in the Zoological Garden, Alipore, Kolkata, India and was managed successfully. The tumour was observed as a superficial, ulcerated, multilobulated intradermal mass. After preoperative haematological evaluation the tumour was excised through routine surgical procedure under chemical immobilisation. Post-operative management was uneventful. Local tumour recurrence was not noticed till one year after post-operation.
