1/3. T-cell-rich B-cell lymphoma in a ring-tailed lemur (lemur catta).

    A 13-yr-old ring-tailed lemur (lemur catta) was evaluated for depression, anorexia, polyuria, and polydipsia. The lemur was in poor body condition and was anemic, hypoalbuminemic, and hyponatremic. Cytologic examination of aspirates of the spleen, liver, and bone marrow and histopathologic examination of liver and bone marrow biopsies revealed a disseminated round cell tumor. After euthanasia, necropsy revealed hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, and mesenteric lymphadenomegaly. Neoplastic cells were present within the spleen, liver, kidneys, multiple lymph nodes, bone marrow, lung, small intestine, pancreas, and testicle and were composed of large anaplastic round cells in a background of small well-differentiated lymphocytes. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed that the small well-differentiated lymphocytes labeled for the anti-human T-cell marker, CD3, and the large anaplastic round cells labeled with the anti-human B-cell marker, CD79a. On the basis of the immunohistochemical staining results and morphologic appearance, a diagnosis of a T-cell-rich B-cell lymphoma was made.

3/3. Renal cysts in a cow with anorexia, hypocalcemia and abdominal pain.

    A ten-year-old Holstein cow developed anorexia, fever, and recumbency 2 weeks before calving. She was hypocalcemic with concurrent mild pneumonia and mastitis. Due to evidence of impending abortion, parturition was induced and the cow developed metritis. Despite post partum improvement of pneumonia, mastitis and metritis, the cow remained anorexic and had signs of abdominal pain. An exploratory lapartomy via the left flank revealed a greatly enlarged right kidney. On examination through the right flank, 2 large simple renal cysts were found and a nephrectomy was performed. Postoperatively, the cow's appetite gradually improved and she made an apparent clinical recovery.
