A fourteen-year female Jindo dog showing signs of hemoperitoneum was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma through abdominal radiography and histopathological examination. In the abdominal radiographs, a circular mass was observed on the posterior of the spleen. When the splenic mass was removed via laparotomy, it was spherical, poorly circumscribed, and showed signs of necrosis, with white spots present on the outer side of the mass. Microscopically, the mass showed that hemorrhage was widespread and extensive infiltration of neoplastic cells was found throughout. There was hypercellularity, including occasional pleomorphic cells and mitotic figures. Inflammation at the edge of the mass, along with necrosis, was also found. In this report, we describe the gross and histopathological findings of a case of canine hemangiosarcoma.
