Massive scrotal swelling in two unusual cases of canine sertoli-cell tumour
  1. PE McNeil and
  2. AD Weaver


Two cases of Sertoli-cell tumour in dogs in which the presenting sign was a partially reducible scrotal swelling are described. In one animal intravenous extension of the tumour had led to varicosity of the testicular vein while lymphatic extension had resulted in the formation of both sublumbar and intrathoracic growths. In the second animal there was massive hydrocoele and some varicosity of the distal testicular vein and there was again lymphatic spread with tumours in the sublumbar lymph nodes and the spleen. Both animals showed changes considered to be evidence of feminisation.
