Large T-cell extradural lymphoma with concurrent marked cerebrospinal fluid eosinophilia in a dog – Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

The article discusses a case of a 3-year-old male pit bull terrier who presented with progressive tetraparesis and cervical pain. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an extradural mass in the left lateral vertebral canal. Lumbar cerebrospinal fluid analysis showed significant eosinophilic inflammation. The dog underwent surgery and chemotherapy, which resulted in resolution of clinical signs. However, the dog experienced a recurrence 37 months later and was eventually euthanized due to multiorgan failure. This case demonstrates a positive long-term response to multimodal treatment for extradural T-cell lymphoma with marked cerebrospinal fluid eosinophilia

ABSTRACT

A 3-year-old male pit bull terrier was presented for a 4-day history of progressive tetraparesis and cervical pain. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed an extradural mass within the left lateral vertebral canal extending from caudal C5 to mid-T2. Lumbar cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) demonstrated marked (90%) eosinophilic inflammation. A C6-7 dorsal laminectomy and C7-T2 left hemilaminectomy were done, with gross disease remaining. Histopathology revealed a large T cell lymphoma with marked eosinophilic infiltration. The dog underwent CHOP-based chemotherapy with resolution of clinical signs, with a similar course of therapy performed at recurrence 37 months after initial presentation. The dog was euthanized 39 months after presentation for multiorgan failure secondary to neutropenic sepsis and aspiration pneumonia. This represents a positive long-term response to multimodal treatment of extradural T-cell lymphoma within the vertebral canal associated with a marked CSF eosinophilia.
