Apocrine glands are the major type of sweat gland in dogs, and the distribution of eccrine sweat glands is limited to the footpads. Apocrine sweat gland carcinomas comprise a group of rare malignant skin tumors and tend to occur on the head, neck, and limb .5 years. When less intensive treatment plans are pursued, the prognosis is typically shorter, although anal gland adenocarcinoma is one of the most challenging tumor types to predict survival
Anal Sac Apocrine Gland Adenocarcinoma Apocrine gland adenocarcinoma of the anal sac is a tumour accounting for 17% of perianal tumours in dogs. Anal sac adenocarcinoma is a disease of older dogs with the average age of onset being between 10 and 11 years Tumors of the anal sacs originate from the apocrine glands of the anal sac wall. Adenocarcinoma of the anal sac is quite common and represents about 2% of all canine skin tumours. The average age of affected dogs is 11 years and breeds such as Spaniels, Dachshunds, and Shepherd dogs are predisposed Apocrine gland adenocarcinoma had been diagnosed on histologic evaluation, with surgical margins noted to be clean but close. On presentation to UTVMC, the dog was bright and alert. A small area of thickening was noted in the region of the excised anal sac on digital rectal examination A retrospective study of 43 dogs with anal sac adenocarcinoma (ASAC) was performed to characterize the clinical presentation and response to treatment. Clinical signs at presentation varied considerably, with signs related either to sublumbar nodal metastasis (tenesmus or constipation) or hypercalce Ross J T, Scowelli T D, Matthiesen D T & Patnaik A K (1989) Adenocarcinoma of the apocrine gland of the anal sac in the dog - a retrospective study of 31 dogs.

Apocrine Gland Carcinoma. Apocrine sweat gland tumors are relatively uncommon in dogs (1% of all skin tumors) and cats (3% of all skin tumors) (see Tables 19.1 and 19.2). In a series of apocrine gland tumors, 40 of 44 dogs and 8 of 10 cats had malignant apocrine gland carcinomas.139 In dogs the median age at diagnosis is 9 years, with most. Anal sac adenocarcinoma (ASAC) is a malignant tumor arising from the apocrine glands in the wall of the anal sac. It accounts for about 17% of all perianal tumors in the dog. Females were previously thought to have been predisposed, but more recent studies have shown an approximately equal sex distribution Ear Canal Tumors in Dogs and Cats Clinical Oncology Service Ryan Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania Benign or malignant tumors can develop in the external ear canal of dogs and cats, and arise from the apocrine or ceruminous glands that line the ear canal. These tumors are more commonly seen in cats but can also occur in dogs
Human glycogen-rich adenocarcinoma, derived from the salivary gland, has biologic features similar to those of the present tumor, such as PAS-positive and alcian blue-negative clear cytoplasm, and good prognosis despite microinvasion. 3 Even in dogs, similar clear cell changes have also been recognized in an oral tumor derived from minor. Rose E. Raskin, in Canine and Feline Cytology (Third Edition), 2016 Apocrine Gland Adenocarcinoma of Anal Sac (Anal Sac Adenocarcinoma) There is an increased incidence of anal sac adenocarcinoma in older, spayed female dogs, but a sex predilection has not been confirmed (Goldschmidt and Shofer, 1992) Apocrine gland adenocarcinomas of the anal sac are typically seen in older female dogs. These dogs may be presented for signs secondary to hypercalcemia, such as polyuria and polydipsia, or for problems related to the perineal mass
Fine-needle aspiration cytology of the mass suggested an epithelial tumour, resembling an apocrine gland carcinoma of the anal sac. Following euthanasia and necropsy, the histopathological diagnosis of the retroperitoneal mass was apocrine gland adenocarcinoma. Despite ante- and postmortem examination, no perineal or anal sac tumour was found Cytology of an anal sac adenocarcinoma An anal sac adenocarcinoma is an uncommon and aggressive malignant tumor found in dogs that arises from the apocrine glandular tissue of anal sac. The disease exists in cats as well, but is much less common in that species
Apocrine glands in dogs and cats are also present in association with the anal sac, and modified apocrine glands, known as ceruminous glands, are present in the external auditory meatus. In most mammals, apocrine glands produce an odiferous, oily compound that is a sexual attractant, a territorial marker, and a warning signal pancreatic adenocarcinoma. This is the irst reported case of hypercalcemia of malignancy associated with exocrine pancreatic adenocarcinoma in a dog. BACKGROUND Hypercalcemia of malignancy (HM) in dogs is most commonly associated with lymphoma or apocrine gland anal sac adenocarcinoma (AGASAC) and usually results from production of parathy Tumors of the perianal area occur frequently in dogs, and the two most common tumors are perianal gland adenoma and anal sac adenocarcinoma .Diagnostic cytology is a useful technique and is usually used to establish the diagnosis of these tumors .Benign adenomas constitute over 81% of tumors of the perianal glands
Anal sac cancer causes local problems, mainly because of pain and straining to defecate. Anal sac apocrine gland adenocarcinoma also leads to systemic issues, including hypercalcemia and metastasis. Affected patients are older female dogs in 90 percent of the cases. A few cases have been described in cats. It is important to keep an open mind. Differential diagnosis for perianal disease. Anal sac ADC is more common in dogs and very rare in cats. Other anal sac tumors include adenoma and SCC. Metastasis and hypercalcemia is rare in cats with anal sac ADC. Site: firm and fixed mass with local invasion at either 4 o'clock or 8 o'clock. Anal sac mass may be small and hypercalcemia or metastasis may be detected prior to anal sac mass Illustrated with high-quality photomicrographs, Differential Diagnosis in Small Animal Cytology: The Skin and Subcutis is a comprehensive resource for identifying through cytology the most common cutaneous and subcutaneous diseases of dogs and cats. With key points describing the main clinical and cytological features of each lesion, the book provides lists of differential diagnoses, including.
Introduction. A written cytology report is the principal means by which diagnostic results are communicated from the clinical pathologist to the clinician (1, 2).Uncertainty is inherent in many cytology and pathology diagnoses, with certainty being affected by the quality of sample, type of lesion, pathologist experience, and availability of patient information (2-4) James W. Elliott, Response and outcome following toceranib phosphate treatment for stage four anal sac apocrine gland adenocarcinoma in dogs: 15 cases (2013-2017), Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 10.2460/javma.254.8.960, 254, 8, (960-966), (2019) Anal glands are located on either side of the anus and normally produce secretions that are pushed when feces is evacuated from the rectum. An anal sac tumor is a tumor of made up of cells originating from the glands of the anal sac. These tumors can spread and therefore staging is recommended prior to surgery. To diagnose these tumors, a fine needle aspirate can be placed from the outside and. Adenocarcinomas of the Glands of the Anal Sac (Apocrine Glands) Apocrine glands are the true anal glands - not to be confused with the anal sacs or the perianal glands. These tumours are much less common than intestinal adenocarcinoma. They are more common in bitches than dogs and can be bilateral. The masses may cause local problems and.

Anal sac gland carcinoma - This is a malignant tumor found in the wall of the anal sac and is quite common in dogs, common in the age group 5-15 years. Diagnosis Diagnostic techniques consist of a fine needle aspiration for microscopic examination of cell samples (cytology) Dogs that present with hypercalcemia of an unknown origin, particularly older dogs, should have a thorough evaluation of the anal sacs, because even small tumors can cause significant hypercalcemia. Hypercalemia can be found in up to 25 percent of dogs with anal-sac tumors (Moore, 2006)

An anal sac apocrine gland adenocarcinoma is an uncommon tumor in dogs and cats [4,8]. This type of tumor is usually unilateral, not painful and may be quite small (0.2 to 1 cm). Therefore, a careful rectal examination is required [2,5]. Regardless of size, these tumors are highly malignant in dogs The most common initial presentation in patients with acinic cell carcinoma is painless mass. Clinical examination shows a firm, mobile nodule in the parotid gland. Facial nerve paralysis or paresis is an uncommon initial finding. MYB immunohistochemical staining is useful in diagnosis of adenoid cystic carcinoma Researchers evaluated the efficacy of toceranib treatment of apocrine gland anal sac adenocarcinoma in 36 client owned dog. Dogs had been diagnosed through either a cytology or histology. Dogs were treated with toceranib alone or in combination with surgery, nonconcurrent chemotherapy or both

Though rare, it is one of the most common malignant tumor of the ear canal in older cats. And while it may be locally invasive, it has a low rate of distant metastasis (spreading of the cancer) Ceruminous glands (which produce ear wax), mammary glands (which produce milk), and ciliary glands in the eyelids are modified apocrine sweat glands. Earwax consists of dead skin cells, hair, and the secretions of cerumen by the ceruminous and sebaceous glands of the outer ear canal. A ceruminous adenoma is a benign glandular neoplasm which arises from the ceruminous glands located within the.
Cell arrangement in the cytopathological assays was classified as cribiform, papillary, lobular/alveolar, cohesive, isolated, filiform and naked cell. In the histopathological assay, it was classified as simple duct, papillary duct, apocrine duct, solid, cribiform, complex and mixed. Most wounds presented more than one arrangement, but the. Apocrine hidrocystoma (AH) is a benign tumor, derived eyelid tumors, they more commonly originate in the medial from modified apocrine sweat (Moll's) glands, accounting for canthus (2, 3, 10, 11).

Canine anal sac apocrine carcinoma is a malignant tumor originated from apocrine glands on the anal sac walls. In dogs, it accounts for 17% of malignant perianal tumors (North and Banks, 2009).Metastases are frequent and occur in 50% to 80% of cases at the time of diagnosis (Bennett et al., 2002; Goldschmidt and Zoltowski, 1981).Many treatment modalities have been described. Anal sac adenocarcinoma is an uncommon condition affecting older dogs that can cause tumors to grow on the anal sacs. These tumors are malignant and usually spread to other areas of the body, including the lymph nodes. Tumor growth can produce hormones that cause hypercalcemia, or an elevated level of calcium in the blood that can weaken bones.
Apocrine Carcinoma of Skin is usually observed in adults, young or old. It is a slow-growing tumor that can metastasize. Sometimes, multiple tumors may be present. The treatment of choice is a surgical excision with clear margins followed by radiation therapy or chemotherapy, as decided by the healthcare provider Apocrine carcinomas tend to test negative for estrogen and progesterone receptors, but there is quite a wide variability for both hormones. Apocrine tumors have been shown to be HER-2 positive about 50% of the time, and breast cancers quite commonly test positive for androgen receptors, between 55 and 100% of the time Apocrine gland anal sac adenocarcinoma The second most common cause of hypercalcemia of malignancy in dogs In dogs, apocrine gland anal sac adenocarcinomas are the second most common neoplastic.
