Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the trachea was diagnosed in a 14-year-old domestic shorthaired cat suffering from dyspnoea. X-ray examination revealed marked stenosis of the lumen in the thoracic segment of the trachea. Post-mortem examination of the trachea disclosed two formations. The larger, visible in the radiograph, was formed by thickened tracheal wall. The smaller one was of crest appearance and was located in the cranial segment of the trachea, immediately behind the larynx. The tumour was characterised by immunohistochemical positivity to CD79αcy epitope in the neoplastic cells.Keywords:
