Invasive multiple lymphangiomas in a young dog

Abstract
An unusual case of multiple lymphangiomas with lymph node involvement is described. A seven-month-old, spayed female golden retriever was presented with a myriad of cystic masses in the inguinal and caudal mammary regions. She was diagnosed with congenital lymphangiomas (i.e., lymphatic hamartomas). As in human lymphangiomas, lymphatic endothelial cells expressing factor VIII-related antigen and smooth muscle were present in this case. A literature search did not identify similar characteristics in other reported canine lymphangiomas, The dog was treated surgically and had a recurrence, Following a second surgical intervention, she is now disease-free.
