Veksins A, Kozinda O., Paraneoplastic neurological syndrome associated with mediastinal lymphoma in dog, Onl J Vet Res., 24 (5):263-270, 2020. A 7-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier dog with tremor, polyuria-polydipsia, coordination disorders, nystagmus, and regurgitation was referred to Latvian University Veterinary Hospital. Due to unclear symptoms, multiple diagnostic tests were performed and eventually, cranial mediastinal lymphoma with paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration was diagnosed. Lymphoma is one the most common mediastinal neoplasia in dogs, but paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration associated with cranial mediastinal lymphoma is rare. Authors describe symptoms, lesions and histopathology.


Key words: canine, computed tomography, cerebellar degeneration.
