Six cases of aortic body tumors were diagnosed in dogs by histopathology during the 13year evaluation period.
In these cases, an initial diagnosis of aortic body tumor was based on gross features, the anatomic location of the neoplastic growths, and the histologic pattern of the neoplasm; immunoreactivity to NSE confirmed these findings.
The brachycephalic breeds of dogs are considered highly susceptible to chemodectomas (JOHNSON, 1968; DEAN & STRAFUSS, 1975; KISSEBERTH, 2001), and there is an apparent male predisposition (JOHNSON, 1968; CAPEN, 2002); during this study, only male dogs were diagnosed with aortic body tumors.
