Clinical management and outcome of four-toed hedgehogs (Atelerix albiventris) with histiocytic sarcoma
TLDR
All samples were histologically and immunohistochemically consistent with histiocytic sarcoma (HS) and 3 of 4 cases had grossly recognized metastatic/disseminated lesions. Expand
Clinicopathologic Findings of Spontaneous Leukemia in 9 Pet African Hedgehogs (Atelerix Albiventris)
TLDR
Clinopathologic features of leukemia in 9 hedgehogs, including eosinophilic leukemia and acute leukemia/leukemic phase of lymphoma are described, and classification of acute leukemia by lineage was not possible due to lack of hedgehog cross-reactive or species-specific reagents. Expand
Thyroid Adenoma and Ectopic Thyroid Carcinoma in a Guinea Pig (Cavia porcellus).
TLDR
The current report represents the first documentation of ectopic thyroid carcinoma in this species of guinea pig, and it is considered that the tumors in this case were functional because concurrent lesions related to hyperthyroidism were present. Expand
Primary localized histiocytic sarcoma of the lumbar vertebrae in a four-toed hedgehog (Atelerix albiventris)
TLDR
The case showed aggressive osteolysis of lumbar vertebrae on radiography, and a soft-tissue mass effacing this region was noted, suggesting a neoplastic lesion, but no metastatic lesions were apparent. Expand
Tracheal chondrosarcoma in a blue tegu (Salvator merianae)
TLDR
An 8-year-and-1-month-old female blue tegu (Salvator merianae) was brought to a clinician with severe cough and died 11 days later, and necropsy represents the first pathological documentation of tracheal chondrosarcoma in a reptile. Expand
A case of preputial cystostomy performed on an African pygmy hedgehog (Atelerix albiventris) with urethral obstruction
TLDR
It is suggested that preputial cystostomy may offer an effective salvage technique for African pygmy hedgehogs with unresolvable urethral obstruction. Expand
