The clinical, ultrasonographic and histopathological features of a pancreatic multihormonal islet cell tumour are described in a 12-year-old dachshund with cutaneous lesions suggestive of metabolic epidermal necrosis. This condition was suspected because of the compatible cutaneous signs, a high plasma glucagon concentration and the detection of a well defined pancreatic mass by ultrasonography. The diagnosis was confirmed postmortem and by histology.
