Sebaceous gland tumour (SGT) is a rare tumour with a low incidence rate, which mainly occurs in the eyelid and periocular sebaceous gland. In 2019, our laboratory received a case involving a sebaceous gland tumour of the external auditory meatus for pathological diagnosis. It is a rare malignant tumour in the whole body. Data regarding a sebaceous gland tumour in the dogĂ­s external auditory meatus are few. This case is instructive for veterinary diagnosis and treatment. The dog recovered well after surgery at the outpatient department, and no recurrence was observed in the follow-up visit one year later. This study will help the identification of SGT in Spaniel dogs.
