History and Clinical Findings

A 5.5-year-old 6.5-kg (14.3-lb) neutered male domestic longhair cat was submitted to the Indiana Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory for postmortem examination. The cat had been evaluated at the Purdue University Veterinary Teaching Hospital because of a 2-year history of hind limb ataxia that had progressively worsened to hind limb paraparesis during the preceding 2 weeks. The cat had a history of asthma that had been previously treated with corticosteroids by the referring veterinarian, but the cat was not currently receiving any medications for asthma. Thoracic radiography revealed a soft-tissue nodule in the left caudal lung lobe.
