Abstract

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma has been uncommonly described in dogs. Several extranasal neoplasias have been reported to result hypertensive epistaxis. There are, however, no published case reports of extranasal malignant fibrous histiocytoma with concurrent hypertension and epistaxis in dogs. A 10-year-old dog presented with a spontaneous massive epistaxis persisting for 5 days. The dog exhibited unstable hypertension, which was considered as a cause of epistaxis. The complete blood count, prothrombin time, and activated partial thromboplastin time were within the reference limits, and other systemic examination showed no abnormalities except for a splenic mass occupying more than one third of the abdomen. Histologic examination of the resected spleen revealed the characteristic features of a malignant fibrous histiocytoma. One week after splenectomy, the hypertension and epistaxis resolved clinically and did not recur on the 5-month follow-up. The dog's blood pressure and epistaxis normalized after malignant fibrous histiocytoma resection suggesting that hypertensive epistaxis may be a rare manifestation of canine malignant fibrous histiocytoma.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 01 November 2018.
All research outputs
#8,611,715
of 13,725,722 outputs
Outputs from BMC Veterinary Research
#927
of 2,028 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#160,890
of 267,402 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Veterinary Research
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,725,722 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,028 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.9. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,402 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
