Abstract

Pruritic open skin lesions (5 mm diameter) on the thorax, neck, or head of 3 ferrets were diagnosed as mast cell tumors. Diagnosis of the tumors was based on histologic examination of biopsy specimens. Histologic diagnosis was necessary because the lesions had been treated as mycotic or bacterial ulcers and did not respond to conventional treatment. Excised mast cell tumors did not recur, and malignant behavior of the tumors was not observed.
