Abstract

A female cat of ten years and six months old was referred to us with acute paralysis of the limbs. Magnetic resonance imaging and other clinical examinations revealed a spinal lesion, which was suspected of being an infarction. The cat was euthanized on the 405th day, since its chronic renal failure had worsened. Pathologically, a good possibility of the spinal lesion being caused by fibrocartilaginous embolism.
