A metastatic tumor associated with pericardial effusion was diagnosed in a 6- year-old, female, mixed- breed dog. Echocardiography identified multiple echogenic masses adherent to both visceral and parietal pericardium while results of pericardial fluid cytology were non-diagnostic. The distribution pattern of the masses is remarkable in that they protruded from both pericardial surfaces, rather than one, and demonstrated an oscillatory motion during the cardiac cycle. Pathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of multiple metastatic tumors of the pericardium, with the primary tumor being an anaplastic gastric adenocarcinoma. [...]

Abstract

A metastatic tumor associated with pericardial effusion was diagnosed in a 6- year-old, female, mixed- breed dog. Echocardiography identified multiple echogenic masses adherent to both visceral and parietal pericardium while results of pericardial fluid cytology were non-diagnostic. The distribution pattern of the masses is remarkable in that they protruded from both pericardial surfaces, rather than one, and demonstrated an oscillatory motion during the cardiac cycle. Pathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of multiple metastatic tumors of the pericardium, with the primary tumor being an anaplastic gastric adenocarcinoma. [...]
