The authors present a particular case of cancer evolution in a five years old mixed breed dog. Medical advice had been requested at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, soliciting the examination of a swelling of the first digit in the right anterior leg. Blood tests revealed no significant hematological or biochemical alterations. The radiological examination revealed a soft tissue tumor of the first digit in the right anterior leg, which did not incorporate the bone structure. Following the surgical removal of the tumor, cytomorphological and histopathological exams were performed. Both indicated the same diagnosis: squamous cell carcinoma accompanied by a secondary infection. The cytomorphological examination revealed a particular aspect of the squamous carcinoma. This particularity is given by the coexistance of malignant neoplastic cells with giant tumoral cells conglomerates, which have monstruous nuclei of various shapes, with giant nucleoli and abundant cytoplasm, highly basophilic.
