Abstract

Lesions of the uterine tube were described in 37 dogs and nine cats. Of the 52 lesions noted, 18 were developmental abnormalities; four paramesonephric remnants, and 14 mesonephric remnants. Uterine tube cysts were seen in 16 animals, and seven animals had salpingitis. One dog had hyperplastic changes of the infundibular mucosa, and one cat and one dog demonstrated adenomyosis. There were three primary benign uterine tube neoplasms, one adenocarcinoma, two metastatic neoplasms in the uterine tube, and two bursal lipomas, all in dogs. With the exception of neoplasia of the uterine tube, most lesions were unlikely to affect the reproductive performance of these animals and/or were incidental or secondary to disorders elsewhere in the reproductive tract.
