SANTOS, A.S.O. et al. Sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis in dog (Canis familiaris): case report. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.5, pp.1203-1205. ISSN 1678-4162.

A 5-year-old dog with chronic ascites was submitted to several clinical exams, which were inconclusive. Laparotomy revealed abdominal serosanguinous fluid and multiple nodules of several sizes with irregular surface, with visceral and parietal adhesion to the peritoneum, resembling malignant neoplasia. Euthanasia followed by necropsy and collection of samples to histopathological diagnosis was performed. Pathological exam revealed sessile nodules resistant to cut and the microscopy evaluation showed fibrous connective tissue and trabecular bone with sponge bone arrangement associated with active osteoclasts. The definitive diagnosis was sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis.

Keywords : dog; histopathology; peritonitis; serosanguinous fluid.
