Abstract

A case of plasmacytoma of bulbus glandis of penis in a dog is reported. One year old non-descript uncastrated dog with the history of swelling at the base of penis was presented. Dog had firm immovable mass under the skin over the base of the penis. Fine needle aspiration cytology was collected and showed highly cellular, individually placed distinct round cells with eccentric nucleus. Perinuclear halo was conspicuous in majority of cells. Under general anaesthesia, the mass was excised. The growth was firmly attached with the bulbus glandis of the penis. Histopathologically, the tissue was highly cellular and revealed individual pleomorphic round cells arranged as cords separated by fine fibrous stroma. The neoplastic cells showed variable amount of amphophilic cytoplasm with eccentrically placed nucleus. The nucleus was vesicular and showed mild anisokaryosis. Dutcher’s bodies were noticed in few cells. Based on the cyto-histomorphological studies, the case was diagnosed as extramedullary non-cutaneous solitary plasmacytoma at the bulbus glandis of the penis in a non-descript dog.
