Today’s case is a 2-year-old female Yorkshire Terrier that presented to emergency in respiratory distress. Take a look and post your interpretations.
FindingsThis study consists of 3 whole body projections and 2 projections of the neck. On the neck projections, there is a soft tissue mass ventral to the larynx that is causing dorsal displacement of the ventral laryngeal wall. This in turn is causing marked narrowing of the laryngeal lumen. In the thorax, the projections are moderately obliqued. However, the cardiopulmonary structures appear within normal limits.
Differential DiagnosisLaryngeal swelling with airway obstruction.
