Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain and skull of sheep with cerebral coenurosis.
TLDR
It is suggested that cranial cavity volume and morphological abnormalities can be detected in sheep with CC, which may reflect abnormalities in ossification of the cranial bones secondary to chronically increased ICP caused by development of T multiceps cysts.
What is your neurologic diagnosis? Taenia multiceps brain cyst.
TLDR
A 1-year-old 15-kg (33-lb) female dwarf goat was evaluated because of a 1-month history of progressive neurologic disturbances and revealed that the goat had a depressed mental status, left head turn, wide-based stance, hypertonia, ataxia, hypermetria, and prolonged retention of food in the mouth.
Magnetic resonance imaging features of progressive ethmoid hematoma in 2 horses.
TLDR
The purpose of this case report is to contribute to a correct diagnostic approach to this particular pathology of upper respiratory tract in horses by allowing for a very detailed imaging of the development of the disease and suggests appropriate therapeutic choices.
Relationships among neuroscore, magnetic resonance imaging features, and intracranial pressure in sheep affected by slow‐growing brain lesions
TLDR
It is shown that in sheep affected by slow-growing lesions, severe alterations in the neuroscore and the results of objective MRI are related to an increased intracranial pressure beyond the normal threshold.
Pulmonary arterial response to Angiostrongylus vasorum in naturally infected dogs: echocardiographic findings in two cases
TLDR
The pulmonary arterial pressure (PAP) response to A. vasorum natural infection probably represents an initial escape mechanism of PH that, over time, exhausts its compensatory capacities allowing PAP to rise and to be detectable on echocardiography.
Clinical evolution of cerebral coenurosis from invasive to chronic infection in sheep and a goat.
TLDR
MRI captured the transition between the invasive and quiescent phase of the infection, revealing the concurrent presence of meningitis and small cysts in small ruminants.
A pilot study evaluating the effect of mannitol and hypertonic saline solution in the treatment of increased intracranial pressure in 2 cats and 1 dog naturally affected by traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
Both mannitol and hypertonic saline decrease ICP and improve CPP, but the effect observed in this pilot study suggests that there might be differences in the duration of these effects.
Cisternal cerebrospinal fluid analysis in 24 sheep with chronic coenurosis.
TLDR
Coenurosis, a neurological parasitic infection of ruminants caused by the larval stage of Taenia multiceps, is commonly reported in Sardinia, the most representative region for ovine population in Italy and the very absence of significant neutrophilic pleocytosis could be considered useful to diagnose chronic cerebral coenurosis.
Repeatability of ultrasound examination of the optic nerve sheath diameter in the adult cat: comparison between healthy cats and cats suffering from presumed intracranial hypertension
TLDR
The transpalpebral ultrasonographic technique is a non-invasive, feasible and reproducible method to measure ONSD both in healthy cats and in cats suffering from suspected ICH.
