Chapter 18 Hematologic and Immunologic Diseases
Lymphoma is the most common malignancy of the ferret. Several forms of lymphoma exist; the most frequent is lymphocytic form, which involves the lymph nodes and spreads to visceral organs later in the disease. The lymphoblastic form, seen mostly in young ferrets, produces visceral neoplasms early on in the disease. Another form is a combination type rarely seen.
