I scanned this cystic lesion in a severely PUPD stray geriatric Staffie. The only changes on bloods was elevated ALP. It was drinking 6-9 litres/day. The watery fluid that came out of this cystic lesion was acellular. It had other liver masses and a very nodular spleen (hence was PTS'd and this was post mortem). Has anyone seen anything like this before? Benign or otherwise? Related to PUPD???
Did you submitted samples for histopathology¿
Sadly not Ivan - finances didn't permit it. I did analysis and a cytospin on the fluid in house and it was pure transudate and absolutely acellular.
I've never seen anything like it. I was thinking either a primary cystic lesion or localised portal hypertension due to a liver thrombus?? There were other lesions in the liver which looked more classically neoplasic.
Ok. Thank you.
Never seen before....
