Renal secondary hyperparathyroidism is a complex clinical syndrome frequently described in dogs. However, in most cases, lesions are characterized by fibrous osteodystrophy of facial bones, affecting principally the mandible and the maxilla. There are few reports of renal secondary hyperparathyroidism associated with facial tumorous masses in the dog; similar findings in dogs have not been previously described in Brazil. This report describes the clinical, pathological, and radiological findings of this syndrome in a 14-month-old dog with oral tumorous-like lesions. The pathogenesis associated with this disease is also discussed.
