Treatment of primary intracranial neoplasms: a case report and review
Hammond, James J.
The incidence of intracranial neoplasia in dogs and cats has been cited at 14.5/100000 and 3.5/100000, respectively. While these numbers may not accurately reflect the true incidence seen today, brain tumors in domestic animals occur with enough frequency to be of concern. With advances in imaging techniques such as the CT and MRI, specific localization of intracranial tumors is now possible in domestic animals. Definitive diagnostic tools have also become an option at some large veterinary institutions. As a result, several treatment options are now available for patients with intracranial neoplasia. The currently available treatment options along with a review of survival times from previous studies will be addressed.
