Intracranial masses are a large group of malign and benign structures, that can affect any system of the body, including the nervous system. Since the incidence of this pathology is influenced by several factors, this paper aims to present the epidemiological data collected from 58 cases - 41 dogs (70.68%) and 17 cats (29.31%) diagnosed in the Clinic of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Bucharest between 2018 and 2020. The reviewed factors included signalment data like species, breed, age, and sex. Also, for each case, clinical and neurological deficits were analysed and the results were used to localize the lesion within the nervous system and to establish the differential diagnoses according to “VITAMIND” acronym. The confirmation and the anatomical site of the mass were recorded based on the imagistic features obtained on MRI. This study is limited only to a provisional diagnosis, as the animals included in the database were not subjected to a post-mortem examination.
