OKADA, M et al. Negative MRI findings in a case of degenerative myelopathy in a dog. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2009, vol.80, n.4, pp.254-256. ISSN 2224-9435.

An 11-year-old male Rough collie was submitted with paraparesis, but did not respond to medical treatment. Clinical signs worsened and the dog displayed paralysis, inability to stand and loss of voluntary bladder control, whereupon magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed. No significant abnormalities were identified from MRI, blood tests, cerebrospinal fluid tests or radiography. After MRI, the dog developed dyspnoea and died. Autopsy and subsequent histopathological examination led to a diagnosis of degenerative myelopathy.

Palavras-chave : degenerative myelopathy; dog; magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
