Although bone tumors are common pathologies in pet animals, limited reports describe nasal osteosarcoma (OSA) in cats. This report presents a case of nasal OSA in a mature local Libyan cat admitted to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Tripoli – Libya, with nasal swelling and discharges and facial deformity. The radiological findings revealed nasal bone lysis with no evidence of lung metastasis. In addition, no fungal growth has been seen on microbiological culture. Furthermore, the pathological examination has grossly revealed a destructed nasal bone due to the presence of tumor mass and muco-sanguineous nasal discharges with no local or generalized metastasis. OSA was confirmed histopathologically.

Key words: Keywords: cat, osteosarcoma, nasal cavity, no metastasis
