PAULA, Morales et al. Uveal melanoma in an African pigmeus hedgehog (Atelerix albiventris) A case report. Compend. cienc. vet [online]. 2021, vol.11, n.1, pp.36-41. ISSN 2226-1761.

ABSTRACT. African pygmy hedgehogs are one of the new companion pets and in consultation they are becoming more and more common. A 4-year-old female hedgehog attended the consultation, presenting a lesion in the left eye. An ophthalmological examination was performed and cytology was recommended to guide the diagnosis. Cytological findings indicated that the process corresponded to a melanoma. Melanomas are malignant neoplasms and this case is the first report in Ecuador, and it could be useful as a base information for further studies.
