Cosmo Cattle Dog FeN 10yrs 22kg

History

Presented with proprioceptive deficits to both hind limbs,

only mild righting attempt on LHS hind limb. No forelimb deficits, no

cervical discomfort on manipulation. Otherwise Cozmo had been well

right up to sudden onset of paresis/paralysis hind limbs (UMN signs). In

retrospect owner may have noted her being a little more quiet the 3 days

prior.

 

Aggressive bone lesion proximal 4th rib with associated soft

tissue mass and obliteration of the epidural fat at T3 and T4.

These findings are interpreted as primary bone lesion (most

likely chondrosarcoma) taking origin from the right 4th rib and

extending within the vertebral canal. This findings can

explain paresis/paralysis hind limbs

Permeative lysis of the dorsal aspect of the 4th right rib. Long zone of

transition and evidence of amorphous new bone formation. No evidence

of bone lysis or new bone formation in the adjacent vertebra

Associated soft tissue mass measuring at least 7 cm in diameter

extending ventrally and displacing the lung and cardiac silhouette

ventrally and to the left.
