An eight-week-old male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rat showed signs of emaciation, and masses were found in the subcutis around the cervical and thoracic regions. At necropsy, a multilobular mass, 2.2 x 1.8 x 2.0 cm in size, had grown from the left neck into the thoracic cavity. On a cutting surface, masses were firm and whitish to tan, with necrotic and hemorrhagic plaques. Microscopically, masses were composed of multiple nodules of tumor cells that were incompletely encapsulated with fibrous connective tissue. The tumor cells exhibited varied forms, from spindle to globoid shapes with minimal to abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm, and appeared as large, multinucleated cells; many of the tumor cells were vacuolated. Histochemistry results revealed that tumor cells exhibited some cross-striation in the cytoplasm using PTAH staining. There were some multinuclear tumor cells with vacuoles located around the nuclei, and these vacuoles showed reddish staining by the periodic acid Schiff ( PAS) method. Immunohistochemical staining also expressed intense granular cytoplasmic staining for desmin and myoglobin, with highly positive staining for PCNA, whereas alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) was negative. Based on the pathology results, a spontaneous rhabdomyosarcoma with pleomorphic type was diagnosed in a young SD rat.
