Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Isolated ectopic brain tissue within the orbit is an extremely rare finding and has never been reported in dogs or other domestic species. In this case, a focal choristoma of ectopic grey matter-like tissue was present within the retina of a mature female beagle dog, and consisted of neurons and astrocytes as demonstrated respectively by microtubule-associated protein 2 and glial fibrillary acidic protein immunohistochemistry. The lesion was located within the optic fundus adjacent to the optic disk and surrounded by dysplastic retina. The case is presented with a review of literature on this rare entity.
