An ulcerated, 1 x 0.5 cm, subcutaneous mass on the craniolateral aspect of the right tibiotarsus of a 4-year-old male cockatiel was removed. Histologically, the neoplasm was non-encapsulated, infiltrative and composed of irregular vascular channels lined by branching and variably sized spindle-shaped cells with large vesicular nuclei, prominent nucleoli and rare mitoses. Surrounding these vascular channels were fibroblasts and mixed inflammatory cells. Neoplastic cells had diffuse… Expand
Cloacal Fibrosarcoma in a Canary (Serinus canaria)
The diagnosis was cloacal fibrosarcoma, previously not reported in canaries, and Histologically, the mass was composed of interlacing bundles of pleomorphic spindle cells with numerous and bizarre mitotic figures. Expand
Cutaneous Hemangiosarcoma in a Pacific Parrotlet (Forpus coelestis)
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of hemangiosarcoma in a Pacific parrotlet and describes the development of hemangeria in a psittacine bird following trauma-induced inflammation. Expand
The first case report of an hemangiosarcoma in a male blue-fronted amazon parrot is described and a mesenchymal neoplasm composed basically by well formed vascular channels lined by pleomorphic endothelial cells is revealed. Expand

A five-year-old male Java sparrow (Padda oryzivora) was examined because of the appearance of a purple spot approximately 1 mm in diameter on the right metatarsal pad. Seven months later, the spotExpand
Hemangiosarcoma in a Free-living Rufous-bellied Thrush (Turdus rufiventris)
The clinical status of this bird was followed for seven days, but because is a free-living animal there are not much information about the clinical course of the neoplasm, and the three neoplasms gross aspect described here are compatible with hemangiosarcoma. Expand
Electrochemotherapy for the treatment of an incompletely excised subcutaneous low-grade epithelioid hemangioendothelioma in a budgerigar parakeet (Melopsittacus undulatus)
Electrochemotherapy resulted in good local control and cosmetic appearance and should be added to the standard oncological therapies for avian. Expand
Cutaneous Mast Cell Tumor and Mastocytosis in a Black-masked Lovebird (Agapornis personata)
A 12-year-old female black-masked lovebird with a cobalt color mutation was presented for self-mutilation of a mass located on the right lateral neck, the first reported case of a cutaneous mast cell tumor and mastocytosis in a psittacine bird. Expand
Ovarian Hemangiosarcoma in an Orange-winged Amazon Parrot (Amazona amazonica)
A 25-year-old intact female orange-winged Amazon parrot presented for a 2-week history of straining to defecate, lethargy, open-beak breathing, decreased vocalization, and ruffled feathers, and was euthanatized because of a poor prognosis. Expand
A retrospective study of neoplasms in ornamental and pet birds diagnosed at the Hospital de Aves of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (2007-2014)
A retrospective study including a total of 44 ornamental and pet birds with neoplasms diagnosed at the Hospital de Aves, Facultad de Medicina Veterinaria y Zootecnia, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México from January 2007 to April 2014 contributes to the knowledge of the neoplastic diseases that occur in ornamentaland pet birds in Mexico.

Hemangiosarcoma in a Golden Pheasant (Chrysolophus pictus)
A 13-year-old male golden pheasant was examined for a hemorrhagic mass on the leading edge of the right propatagial area of 1 day's duration, and histopathology demonstrated a hemangiosarcoma. Expand
An ultrastructural study of cutaneous hemangioma in two chickens.
Cutaneous hemangioma in two laying hens was examined by light and electron microscopy and it was found that Hemangiomatous structure may develop from the undifferentiated mesenchymal cells in the solid cell mass. Expand

A poorly-differentiated hepatic haemangiosarcoma was found in a 25-year-old Amazona farinosa parrot which had died because of massive internal haemorrhage due to its rupture, and the author suggests a possible hormone-dependent origin of this hepatic vascular tumour. Expand
Intrathoracic haemangiosarcoma in an ostrich (Struthio camelus)
The ostrich presented a well demarcated but invasive intrathoracic tumour that was affixed to the heart and lung, which was comparable with the previously described characteristics of haemangiosarcomas. Expand
Multifocal vascular tumors in fowl induced by a newly isolated retrovirus.
The overall appearance of the tumor was that of a cavernous hemangioma with prominent papillary endothelial hyperplasia and it is suggested that this retrovirus-induced avian tumor may serve as a useful model for the study of transformed endothelia and other vascular tumorigenesis. Expand

Completeness of excision of a tumor is the most important factor that can be used in predicting clinical outcome for an affected dog or cat and degree of differentiation, mitotic rate, size of tumor, and presence or absence of epidermal ulceration, mast cells, or solar elastosis did not correlate with clinical outcome.

Avian hemangioma retrovirus induces cell proliferation via the envelope (env) gene.
It is demonstrated that AHV also induces cell proliferation and anchorage-independent growth of BSC-1 epithelial cells and NIH-3T3 fibroblasts and is a pleiotropic activator capable of inducing either apoptosis or cellular proliferation, depending on the infected cell type. Expand
Induction of angiosarcoma by a c-erbB transducing virus
A novel, 4.3-kilobase c-erbB-related EcoRI fragment is identified in a series of Rous-associated virus type 1-induced erythroleukemias and induces angiosarcoma-inducing virus, which is designated for the chicken in which it originated. Expand
