Abstract

Malignant nerve-sheath tumor with divergent differentiation including epithelial components was diagnosed in an 8-year-old Labrador retriever. The myelographic, morphologic, and immunohistochemical findings confirmed the diagnosis. The tumor was located in the peripheral nerve roots at the first and second lumbar vertebrae. The dog survived for 161 days after resection of the tumor.
