The article describes the case of synovial cell sarcomas (SCS) which are malignant mesenchymal tumors from synoviocytes. It cites a 13-year-ld female maned wolf which was anesthetized for physical examination of the right hindlimb for superficial squamous cells. The result of the radiographic findings show periaticular soft tissue mass similar to dogs which have 78 chromosomes including fibromyxosarcoma and liposarcoma.
