When Mast Cell Tumors Play Hide-and-Seek
This case right here demonstrates just how important cytology is...
10 year old dog with a soft subcutaneous mass.
Submission form: "Suspect lipoma."
I'm *so* glad this awesome vet did their due diligence and aspirated this "suspect lipoma", because it is most definitely not a lipoma.
Aspirate alllll the masses, my friends. Neoplasms like MCTs love to hide in fat and mimic lipomas on gross appearance/feel!
