On post-mortem examination 5 cm large ulcerated mass was found at the base of tail partially obstructing anal opening. Histologically the tumour comprised of large round neoplastic cells with round centrally located nuclei, eosinophilic cytoplasm and well distinct cell borders which were surrounded by single layered hyperchromatic reserve cells.
