Aortic body tumors are located at the base of the heart within the pericardial sac, and are more frequently observed between the aorta and the pulmonary artery (JOHNSON, 1968).
These represent cases of aortic body tumors diagnosed by histopathology at the Laboratory of Veterinary Pathology, Universidade Estadual de Londrina, during 1993-2006, and are from dogs submitted for routine necropsy after euthanasia or spontaneous death.
