Abstract

The clinical, radiographical and histo-pathological findings of a chondrosarcoma in the humerus of a goat are discussed. An 11-year-old female Saanen goat was admitted for evaluation of chronic, progressive left forelimb lameness. Clinical examination revealed signs of pain in the shoulder region. Radiographs of the scapulohumeral joint showed a large lytic lesion of the proximal third of the humerus with cortical destruction, intralesional calcification and marked periosteal reactions. Differential diagnoses included aggressive bone lesions as seen with osteomyelitis or a primary bone tumour, such as osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma or fibrosarcoma. The goat was euthanatized for humane reasons because of the poor prognosis. On the basis of the histopathological findings, the lesion was diagnosed as grade II chondrosarcoma. The tumour had already spread to the lungs and the left prescapular lymph node at the time of diagnosis.

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.
