MOLINA DIAZ, Víctor Manuel  and  OVIEDO PENATA, Carlos Andrés. Langerhans Cell Histiocytoma in canine: a case report in Colombia. Ces. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2014, vol.9, n.1, pp.139-145. ISSN 1900-9607.

Abstract A 10–year-old crossbred neutered dog was submitted to Clínica Veterinaria de Antioquia (Medellín, Colombia) presenting a firm and circular mass of 5 cm in diameter in the lateral region of the foreskin. After histopathological evaluation, the mass corresponded to a Langerhans cell histiocytoma. The patient underwent surgical resection of the mass and was then treated with cephalexin (25 mg/kg every 12 hours, orally, for 1 week), prednisolone (20 days), disinfection of the area (every 12 hours using chlorhexidine), and applying dimethyl sulfoxide on the area (every 12 hours for 3 weeks). We consider this report has a scientific value because this type of histiocytoma is rarely described in dermatology
