A six-year-old, Dogo Argentino male dog, which had been treated for Leishmaniasis for 6 months, was brought to Burdur Mehmet Akif Ersoy University Veterinary Faculty clinics with complaints of partial paralysis, vomiting, lethargy, anorexia and deterioration in general condition. Due to the death of the dog during the treatment, it was sent to the Department of Pathology for necropsy. Macroscopically; The liver and spleen was enlarged and had a granular surface. In the kidney, uroliths were found in the calyx renalis. Microscopically, multifocal granulomatous hepatitis, splenitis, focal myelitis and multifocal nonsuppurative glomerulonephritis were observed.; Leishmania spp. were detected cytoplasm of macrophages in the liver kidney,spleen and medulla spinalis with  Giemsa staining. Biochemical analyzes of urolites were determined to be of xanthine origin. In this study, a case of visceral Leishmaniasis associated with Xanthine Urolithiasis in a Dogo argentino dog was examined with its clinical, macroscopic and microscopical findings in detail.
