|Issue Date:||2011||Publisher:||0936-6768||Journal:||Reproduction in Domestic Animals||Abstract:||ContentsUnilateral testicular enlargement was detected in a 5-years-old domestic ferret during a routine sterilization. The right testicle showed two different types of proliferative lesions: (i) round nodules, well demarcated, showing a soft yellow tissue; (ii) white nodules, firm, with irregular-shaped invaginations. Microscopically, the neoplastic proliferations were identified as an interstitial neoplasm and Sertoli cell tumour, respectively. The left testicle was small and showed intense testicular atrophy. Clinical evaluation of the ferret did not show any other apparent pathological processes. This study is the first case reporting the concomitant occurrence of a Sertoli cells tumour and an interstitial cell tumour in a domestic ferret.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/44147||ISSN:||0936-6768||DOI:||10.1111/j.1439-0531.2009.01567.x||Source:||Reproduction in Domestic Animals[ISSN 0936-6768],v. 46, p. 177-180|
