Multiple Epulides vs Multifocal Fibrosarcoma in a Cat
This 2 1/2 year old female cat presented with multiple oral masses. The differential diagnosis includes two unlikely conditions. Multiple epulides and multifocal oral fibrosarcoma.
Multiple biopsies were taken.A pathologist with special interest in oral pathology from Colorado State University reviewed the findings and images. The diagnosis was multifocal oral fibrosarcoma.
Reports of management of mutifocal FSA do not exist in the veterinary literature. Immediate palliation of discomfort and elimination of trauma to the masses was recommended. Excision of the masses, extraction of associated teeth and contour of adjacent bone was the chosen conservative treatment.
