Abstract

One case of nodular nonsuppurative panniculitis in a dog is described.
The inflammation was observed in a 9-year-old, male maltese. The recurrent and multiple signs and symptoms appeared subcutaneously as a swelling of the liver and spleen. Claudication and fever broke out at the same time. Histophathological findings of skin lesions consisted of granuloma tous inflammation. The adipose tissue almost entirely disappeared. It was substituted by dense inflammatory cells. The inflammatory cells were composed predominantly of hystiocytes. Furthermore the accumulation of phlogocytes and neutrophils were observed in some parts. The fibrous parts were rarely observed.
Therapy consisting of a single administration of predonisolon was effective on all symptoms including the skin induration.
The recurrence has not been observed. Nevertheless, continuous observation is considered necessary as a few studies on recurrence have been reported.
