MetadataShow full item record
The thesis introduces a classification system for canine lipoma, which has not been introduced in veterinary pathology, yet. As there are currently limited/ no literature concerning canine lipoma classification, literature from human medicine has used to establish histological and anatomical criteria for the classification. The classification based on anatomy and histology criteria would be useful for diagnosis with this system. More and more journal articles are being published about canine lipoma cases, which are generally not subcutaneous cases; these are the cases that were researched the most about. Cases which could be life threatening and significant are now categorized. These cases may have previously be thought of as benign and disregarded.
