The purpose of this study was to establish some correlations between clinical signs and location of neoplasia - establishing the most commonly encountered clinical signs and the type of tumor most commonly involved in cerebral compression in dogs (primary or secondary neoplasia). All 20 canine patients, with suspicion for neoplasia in different locations in the head region following clinical and neurologic examination, were examined using a CT scanner, as well as cytology/histopathological examination. Meningioma was the most frequent diagnosed intracranial primary central nervous system tumor. Neoplasia in the head region are invasive, most of which have lead to cerebral compression. Carcinoma, originating in the mammary gland, spread by hematogenous path, has lead, in a large percentage, to brain metastases.
