Abstract: A nine year old male German shepherd dog with a three month history of coughing and dyspnoea for past one month is reported. The investigating protocol, which also included ultrasound guided pulmonary biopsy, allowed a diagnosis of lung adenoearcinoma. The tumor exhibited a nodular-disseminated growth, mimicking the metastatic involvement of the lung, instead ot the single-mass appearance. Ultrasonographic study revealed multiple hypoechoic masses diffusely in thorax with irregular borders and pleural effusion. The present report indicates that, although the incidence ofcanine primary lung neoplasms is markedly low, this condition must be considered in the differential diagnosis of lung diseases that cause coughing and dyspnoea in older dogs.
