- Today’s case is a 7 year old male neutered Jack Russell terrier with generalized pain, lethargy, and lymph node enlargement. Take a look and post your interpretations in the comments section.
There is poor detail within the abdomen, caused by a mass effect in the mid and caudal abdomen. The descending colon is displaced ventrally and laterally. The intestines are displaced toward the cranial abdomen. The liver and spleen appear normal.
In the extra-abdominal tissues, there is increased soft tissue opacity in the inguinal area.
The multiple masses are most likely enlarged lymph nodes including sublumbar, mesenteric, and inguinal. An additional mid-abdominal mass arising from the spleen, gi tract, or mesentery cannot be ruled out.
- Multicentric lymphoma.
