Primary cutaneous neuroblastoma in an old dog
A subcutaneous mass arising in the right gluteal area of an 11-year-old female Shih Tzu dog was surgically excised. One of the most likely clinical differentials is a spindle cell tumor, but histologically the mass was composed of small round or ovoid neoplastic cells that were arranged in nests of various sizes. The neoplastic cells generally had hyperchromatic nuclei and scanty eosinophilic cytoplasm, and were surrounded by a pale pink fibrillar area. A very interesting case and the first description of a neuroblastoma originating from the skin in an adult dog.

Immunohistochemically, the neoplastic cells were positive for vimentin, S-100 protein, neurone-specific enolase and synaptophysin, but negative for cytokeratin, neurofilament protein, glial fibrillary acidic protein and chromogranin A.

On ultrastructural observation, aggregates of thin cytoplasmic processes were frequently seen among the neoplastic cells.

Based on these features, the tumour was diagnosed as a neuroblastoma.

Complex atlanto-axial malformation in a rabbitmembers
A 1-year-old dwarf rabbit was presented with sub-acute progressive tetraparesis. Radiography, CT and MRI revealed compressive cervical myelopathy secondary to a complex atlanto-axial malformation including partial aplasia of the atlantal dorsal arch, dens malformation, malarticulation and lateral atlanto-occipital displacement.
