© 2018 Elsevier Ltd A 10-year-old entire male French bulldog was presented following clusters of generalized tonic–clonic epileptic seizures. Neurolocalization was consistent with a lesion in the left forebrain. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain revealed a large, ill-defined, intra-axial, space-occupying lesion at the level of the left temporal and parietal lobes, causing marked compression of the adjacent parenchyma. Computed tomography of the thorax and abdomen was consistent with disseminated metastatic disease. The dog was humanely destroyed and subjected to necropsy examination. Histological examination of the brain revealed a metastasis of prostatic carcinoma within an anaplastic oligodendroglioma in the left forebrain. To the author's knowledge, this is the first report describing clinical, imaging and histopathological features of an intracranial tumour-to-tumour metastasis in the brain of a dog.
