Sarcomas comprise approximately one-third of canine intranasal tumors; however few veterinary studies have described survival times of dogs with histologic subtypes of sarcomas separately from other intranasal tumors. The particularity of the case is due to nature of nasal tumor – sarcoma - something unusual on nasal tumors and then something extraordinary at the age of occurrence of this tumor – dog of 5 years age. The surgical technique consisted of nasal cavities oral approach and cutting a bone fragment length located in bony floor of the nasal cavity left, which allowed wide access to the cavity.
