Abstract

Synovial sarcoma is a rare tumor in dogs, occurring in approximately 27% of neoplasms involving joints, with the elbow representing a common site of occurrence. The recommended treatment of canine synovial sarcoma is amputation. The authors describe the use of palliative radiation therapy for the treatment of synovial sarcoma involving the elbow of a dog and conclude that this treatment modality may have use in some patients affected with synovial sarcoma.
