Abstract

A 10-year-old spayed female chinchilla feline presented with gradually progressive tetraparesis and cervical pain that had begun 1 month before the onset of a 4-day tetraplegic episode. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a large elliptical intramedullary mass at the fourth cervical vertebrae. The mass was removed surgically and diagnosed as an anaplastic astrocytoma. No neurological abnormalities were observed 3 weeks postsurgery. Magnetic resonance at 3.5 year follow-up revealed neither mass regrowth nor recurrence of signs.
