Hämoabdomen und Hämothorax bei einem Rind mit metastasierendem Granulosazelltumor


Trösch, Luzia Maria; Müller, K; Brosinski, Katrin; Braun, Ueli (2015). Hämoabdomen und Hämothorax bei einem Rind mit metastasierendem Granulosazelltumor. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 157(6):393-343.

Abstract

This case report describes the clinical, ultrasonographic, pathological and histological findings in a two-year-old Swiss Braunvieh cow with granulosa cell tumor and metastases in the abdomen and thorax. The cow was ill and had tachycardia, coughing, increased breath sounds, positive reticular foreign body tests and a tense abdominal wall. Ultrasonography revealed a massive accumulation of hypoechoic fluid in the thorax and abdomen, and abdomino- and thoracocentesis yielded red fluid indicative of abdominal and thoracic haemorrhage. Because of a poor prognosis, the cow was euthanized and examined postmortem. Multiple nodular lesions were seen in the omentum, liver, spleen and lungs. The left ovary was grossly enlarged and nodular in appearance. Histological examination of the lesions revealed granulosa cell tumour of the left ovary and metastases in the omentum, liver, spleen and lungs.
