INTRODUCTION
1 year old intact male cat was presented with slow progressive pelvic limbs paresis grade IV over 2 months and hyperesthesia at thoracic area. The MRI showed extradural mass at the left dorsolateral of 2nd thoracic- 3rd thoracic (T2-T3) and compress to the spinal cord.
OBJECTIVES
To report surgical treatment and outcome in a case of thoracic vertebral osteochondroma in feline leukemia virus negative Domestic shorthair cat.
METHODS
A dorsolateral approach to left-sided of T2-T3was performed, the proliferative bony mass was found and removed. Bone samples were collected for histological examination. Left-sided hemilaminectomy of T2-T3 was performed until spinal cord was seen. After flushing with sterile saline, the defect was covered with an autologous fat graft and the incision was closed routinely.
RESULTS
After operation for 8 weeks, the cat showed improvement in the motoric function of the pelvic limbs with the ability to walk but proprioceptive responses deficit. No hyperesthesia was detected. Six months after surgery, only pelvic limbs ataxia was detected. The biopsy showed cartilaginous matrix with uniform sized and shaped, vertebral osteochondroma was diagnosed.
CONCLUSIONS
Solitary osteochondroma as a cause of neurological deficits in the pelvic limb is rarely observed in cats
and usually associated with feline leukemia virus, but contrast in this case. There are only 1 reported feline case described in the literature. The surgical treatment was succeeded, the cat did not show any neurological deficits or signs of recurrence until now. Normally, prognosis of solitary osteochondroma is good after surgical excision.
