Feline splenic mast cell tumor
Splenic mast cell tumor is the most common splenic neoplasm in the cat. This disease is frequently metastatic, involving liver, lymph node, and bone marrow, with a peripheral mastocythemia. The treatment of choice is splenectomy, with surprisingly long survival times (mean of 12-19 months) considering the extent of metastatic disease. There are currently no proven chemotherapeutic options for cats, although recent research suggests CCNU may be useful post-operatively.
