Resumo

 Granulomatous sebaceous adenitis is characterized by a chronic idiopathic dyskeratosis, with low prevalence in the canine population. This disease results from degeneration and atrophy of the sebaceous glands, and so far, no known causes have been attributed. Still, studies suspect genetic involvement, autoimmune response, or anatomical anomalies of the gland. Sebaceous adenitis most often affects dog breeds such as Akita, Samoyed, and Poodle, which tend to manifest this disorder more severely. Findings include local or generalized pyoderma, alopecia, hyperkeratosis, and seborrhea. The diagnosis is deÞ ned by histopathological examination after ruling out other dermatological or systemic diseases. This paper contains the case of a canine, Akita, aged 5, diagnosed with granulomatous sebaceous adenitis and pseudocyesis. She underwent ovariosalpingohisterectomy and correction of reproductive changes; in addition, it initiated topical therapy with keratolytic shampoo, mineral oil, and omega-3, showing a satisfactory response after three months of the intervention. The patient has clinical remission of all manifestations and maintains a good quality of life
