  • Introduction Mast cell tumors (MCT) are one of the most common cutaneous neoplasms in dogs (7 to 21% depending on the study). They are generally easy to diagnose cytologically and histologically, and rarely are poorly differentiated enough to require additional staining (e.g. T-blue, Giemsa, C-kit, Tryptase) to confirm a diagnosis. Figure 1 shows a well differentiated MCT compared to a poorly differentiated MCT (Fig. 2). Despite their often straightforward diagnosis, their biologic behavior is… CONTINUE READING
