Canine visceral leishmaniasis (LVC) is a disease caused by protozoans of the genus Leishmania, patients affected can present a diversity of clinical symptoms, where the main are: slimming, alopecia, Onychogryphosis and dermatitis. However unconventional signs may be linked to this disease. In this sense the purpose of this work is to report a case of LVC with unconventional signs of the disease. The occurs with a Yorkshire dog that was attended with complaint of pruritus and formation of nodules in the flank region, initially the clinical suspicion was of allergic reaction with fungal dermatitis. After the completion of the complementary exams (Cytopathological, blood count, ALT dosages, creatinine and skin scraping for direct examination) was diagnosed LVC from the observation of Amastigota in Cytopathological. With this result we emphasize the attention to the clinical demonstrations in LVC and the importance of complementary exams such as cytology to quick and accurate diagnostics.
