PARR: a PCR for the Unravelling of Canine Lymphoproliferative Disorders

Lymphoproliferative disorders represent a significant
clinical problem in dogs. From a therapeutic viewpoint,
it is crucial to differentiate neoplastic lymphoid disease
– i.e. the lymphomas and leukaemias – from reactive,
hyperplastic lymphoid conditions. Nevertheless, the
unravelling of nodal or extranodal lymphoproliferative
conditions frequently represents a diagnostic challenge for
veterinary pathologists. By Evert van Garderen, Veterinary
