Oncology - Canine Histiocytic Sarcoma

About the course

Histiocytic Sarcoma is a complex disease which ranges from solitary masses on the skin with a good prognosis, to solitary joint tumours or even disseminated aggressive disease at initial diagnosis with a grave prognosis. There are strong breed predispositions which can both heighten clinical suspicion during initial investigation and affect treatment recommendations. Multimodality therapy is often required with most patients receiving a combination of surgery and chemotherapy. Chemotherapy alone can be effective for widespread disease. The aim of this talk is to summarise the disease, its pathology and clinical management.
