Sample text

Pug encephalitis is associated with a moderate to severe lymphocytic CSF pleocytosis. CT or MR imaging of the brain can identify focal areas of necrosis, edema, and inflammation. Definitive diagnosis requires histopathologic examination of brain tissue. 48. How is Pug encephalitis treated? Immunosuppressive chemotherapeutics, as described for GME, in conjunction with anticonvulsants, can result in temporary improvement in some cases of pug encephalitis. The prognosis for longevity is poor, especially in dogs with acute, fulminant disease.

Computed tomographic and magnetic resonance imaging is also beneficial in the diagnosis of AAI. 15. What treatments are available for AAI? Animals with clinical signs of acute AAI should receive corticosteroid therapy (see the section on acute spinal cord trauma). Animals with clinical evidence of mild neurologic dysfunction (pain and ataxia) may be candidates for conservative management, which includes external coaptation (neck brace) and strict confinement for 4 to 6 weeks. Proper application of a neck brace is reportedly successful in some dogs.

Clinical signs are referable to a focal C1-C5 myelopathy with severity ranging from mild cervical pain or sensory ataxia to tetraplegia with or without respiratory compromise. Evidence of dysfunction of some cranial nerves with nuclei residing in the medulla, in particular the vestibular nuclei, is present in some animals. 14. What radiographic criteria are used to diagnose AAI? Radiographic indicators of AAI that can be obtained from a lateral view of the cervical spine include a widened space between the dorsal arch of C1 and the C2 spinous process and dorsocranial displacement of the body of C2 into the vertebral canal.
