Abstract

An 8-year-old spayed female domestic shorthair cat was presented with a 4-to 5-month history of a progressively growing mass above her anus and an inability to defecate for 3' to 4 wk. External perianal and internal regional masses were subsequently identified and diagnosed as tumors of neuroendocrine origin through surgical excision and histopathologic evaluation. The cat was treated with 2 courses of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
