Abstract

A 3-year-old female rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculi) presented with apathy and indisposition for 2–3 days. Palpation revealed a mass in the caudal abdomen, namely, in the wall of the uterus.
Ovariohysterectomy was performed, and the tissues were submitted for histopathologic examination.
The mass consisted of 3 different (trophoblastic, syncytiotrophoblastic, and cytotrophoblastic) neoplastic cell types originating from the uterus. Immunohistochemistry was positive for cytokeratin in all 3 neoplastic cell types, and the syncytiotrophoblasts were positive also for human chorionic
gonadotropin. Together these features allow the diagnosis choriocarcinoma. This report documents the first case of a spontaneous choriocarcinoma in a rabbit.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
