Primary ganglioneuroblastoma in a red deer (Cervus elaphus)


Ostfeld, Nina; Tahas, Stamatios A; Hatt, Jean-Michel; Hilbe, Monika (2020). Primary ganglioneuroblastoma in a red deer (Cervus elaphus). Veterinary Record Case Reports, 8(3):e001078.

Abstract

We describe the first case of a ganglioneuroblastoma in an adult red deer (Cervus elaphus). This neoplasia showed a unique cervical localisation: it was strongly adhered to the left thyroid gland and contributed to dysphagia via oesophageal compression. Although seldom reported, neoplasias should be included in differential diagnoses for dysphagia in wildlife.
