Ok... Eric was nice enough to ask the vet to fax me the report... so here it is... I have no idea what some of this means like the abbreviations but I'm just going to put it all here anyways. Also the fax didn't make all the letters completely clear so there might be some errors... especially on the medical terms which I cannot begin to guess how they are actually spelled.
Eric has asked they do the two additional tests (was only $70 so why not)Clinical Information: canine Lab Retr 3y MC
Tissue Submitted: SQ masses, Lt thorax
Microscopic Discription: SQ masses, Lt thorax; Sections of three large masses are examined. All three masses are histologically similar and will be described together. The dermis and subcutis are expanded by discrete but unencapsulated, densely cellular, and centrally r ecrotic masses composed infiltrates of macrophages, plasma cells, neutrophils, lymphocytes, and fewer eosinophila and mast cells. Many of the largest macrophages have abundant trothy cytoplasm filled with discrete round racuoles/globules containing an eosinophilic round core (phagocytized cellular debris or possible organisms).
Diagonosis and Comments: SQ masses, Lt thorax; Marked multi-nodular granulomatous dermalopannlculltis.
No clear evidence of neoplasia, intralesional foreign materials (e.g. grass awns, etc.) or specific ecologic agents is seen among the routine H&E slides examined here. The cause of Ender's subcutaneous nodules is not clear, however, two principle differentials should be considered: migrating foreign bodies (especially if this dog is a hunting companion or otherwise has exposure to meadows & marshes) and a fungal or algal infection (e.g. histoplasmosis, others). Special stains for fungi and other microorganisms are available: please contact this laboratory should you wish to pursue additional work up of Ender's lesions.
