The clinical courses of three canine tumor cases were observed after administration of capsulated Hatakeshimeji extract (Lyophyllum decastes Sing.). The liver tumor case died one month after administration of the extract, the rectal carcinoma case in nine months. but the brain tumor case is alive for 23 months. However it is unclear what directly effect the administration Hatakeshimeji has on a tumor, the number of lymphocytes increased after the administration of Hatakeshimeji in all three cases. Therefore, it suggests that Hatakeshimeji plays a role in increasing the number of lymphocytes in canine tumor cases.
