Cutaneous tumours in the guineapig

Abstract: In 2 gulneapigs umbilicated tumours localized in the subcutis were diagnosed as trichofolliculomas. Histopathological examination revealed easily recognizable groups of abortive hair follicles arranged around a complex central space. A 3rd case was a sebaceous gland adenoma, also situated in the subcutis.

“…Reports of spontaneous tumours in guinea pigs are scarce 1–4 . Most reports relate to multicentric lymphomas in laboratory guinea pigs, 5 and reports of tumours in pets are rare 6,7 . In spite of the differences in the literature concerning tumour frequency and classification, there is general agreement that in guinea pigs older than 3 years of age neoplasia is not uncommon, and also that the coincidence of tumours seems to vary greatly with the strain of the guinea pig 6,8 .…”

“…In spite of the differences in the literature concerning tumour frequency and classification, there is general agreement that in guinea pigs older than 3 years of age neoplasia is not uncommon, and also that the coincidence of tumours seems to vary greatly with the strain of the guinea pig 6,8 . Skin tumours have been reported to be the second most common neoplasia, and most were trichofolliculomas 6–8 . Lymphoma in guinea pigs occurs most commonly as multicentric, malignant lymphomas.…”

“…Reports of a single series of 29 trichofolliculomas in Dunkin-Hartley guinea pigs (Ediger andKovatch 1976, Tuch andTuch 1979) implied that this type of neoplasm is common in guinea pigs. In addition, cutaneous papillomas of the footpad, sebaceous gland adenomas, lipomas, fibromas and fibrosarcomas occur sporadically in the skin of guinea pigs (Zwart andothers 1981, Allison andMoeller 1993). Reports of neoplasms of the vascular system in guinea pigs are sparse and, to the best of the authors' knowledge, limited to two reports of nitrosomethylureainduced hepatic haemangiosarcomas (Yoshida andothers 1977, Rao andothers 1980).…”
