For this, they were highlighted data relating to clinical, anatomical and histological, immunohistochemical and therapeutic. The final diagnosis was established by histopathological examination which revealed individual cells arranged in “single file”, or dispersed in the stroma cells with sometimes bizarre and multinucleated, and intense nuclear pleomorphism and high rate mitotic. Immunohistochemical evaluation was performed to better characterize the tumor and aid in therapeutic management. The indicated treatment was chemotherapy with carboplatin, however there was progression of the disease and the animal died 54 days after surgery. This report describes at the first time the canine Pleomorphic lobular carcinoma in its initial stage, contributing to the understanding of the biological feature of this tumour.
