ABSTRACT
An adult male stray dog of non descriptive breed was presented with cauliflower like growth in the penile region. Hospital history revealed that the same dog underwent two consecutive surgical interventions for removal of the growth but recurrence occurred repeatedly. Therefore, duty doctors of the hospital decided to perform euthanasia with the consent of local municipal authority. Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) and histo–pathological examination was performed. Under light microscope, sheets of numerous neoplastic round cells possessing characteristic features and hyperchromatic nuclei were found in tumor mass. But, no evidence of metastasis was observed in surrounding viscera and lymphoid tissues. However, depending on the histological evidence of the tumor mass the case was confirmed as progressive phase of CTVT.
