> Abstract
> A 5-year-old castrated male ferret was referred for hind limbs
> paresis and subcutaneous mass at the lumber area. Based on clinical
> examination including computed tomography, the extension of the mass
> to the abdominal cavity was confirmed. The exploratory laparotomy
> revealed that the mass at the cranial area of the left kidney
> extended dorsally to the vertebra and to the subcutis. The excised
> mass was histologically diagnosed as medullary tumor of the adrenal
> gland, and some neoplastic cells showed beta -tubulin-,
> doublecortin-, and neurofilament-positive. Based on these findings,
> the tumor was considered as a neuroblastoma.
> PMID: 20431253 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
