Abstract

A 21/2-year-old local bitch was diagnosed as having vaginal hyperplasia by both physical examination and histopathology. The mass, which was firm and whitish in colour, measured about 5cm in diameter, was reducible and protruded out of the vulva.

Vagina cytology confirmed that the bitch was in proestrus. The mass was surgically resected due to frequent prolapses and contamination. Histopathology showed the mass to be vagina epithelium with numerous fibrous connective tissue.
