First diagnosed extranodal conjunctival Hodgkin`s-like lymphoma in a cat
A very interesting case report starting with a patient showing the common and non-specific clinical sign conjunctivitis. But it was only unilateral and already lasting for 4 months - and the popliteal lymph node was swollen...

A seven-year-old female spayed Domestic Short-haired cat was brought for examination following a four-month history of conjunctivitis in the right eye.

The superior palpebral conjunctiva was diffusely swollen and firm, displacing the right globe ventrally and preventing full closure of the eyelids.

The right popliteal lymph node was enlarged as were several other peripheral lymph nodes.

An incisional biopsy of the conjunctival swelling revealed a lymphoid neoplasm, the cellular make up of which suggested features of feline Hodgkin`s-like lymphoma.

Although the neoplasm was poorly responsive to standard chemotherapeutic protocols for lymphoma, radiation therapy rapidly reduced its size.

Three years following the initial diagnosis, there has been no recurrence of the conjunctival neoplasm.

To the authors` knowledge, there are no previous reports of extranodal or adnexal (conjunctiva, eyelid, orbit) Hodgkin`s-like lymphoma in the veterinary literature.

Patient-specific facemask to facilitate brain biopsymembers
The objective of this pilot study was to describe the application and first preliminary data of a novel MRI and CT compatible patient-specific facemask for stereotactic brain biopsy of intracranial lesions in dogs. Five client-owned dogs presenting for neurological deficits consistent with forebrain disease were included in the study. All dogs had MRI findings consistent with an intracranial lesion. But biopsies in this region are not easy to obtain. Does an individual face mask help?
