Peripheral nerve sheath tumor in a subadult golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos)


Wernick, Morena B; Dennler, Matthias; Beckmann, Katrin; Schybli, Martina; Albini, Sarah; Hoop, Richard K; Steffen, Frank; Kircher, Patrick R; Hatt, Jean-Michel (2014). Peripheral nerve sheath tumor in a subadult golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos). Journal of Avian Medicine and Surgery, 28(1):57-63.

Abstract

A 5-year-old, female golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) was admitted with tetraplegia that progressed to a nonambulatory, spastic tetraparesis after a few days of treatment. Clinical and radiologic examinations, including radiography, computed tomography scan, and myelography, were indicative of neoplasia involving a spinal nerve root. Postmortem magnetic resonance imaging and necropsy findings confirmed the diagnosis of a peripheral nerve sheath neoplasia, not, to our knowledge, previously reported in a raptor.
