OBJECTIVE: To report temporal lobe surgery for a cavernous hemangioma in a dog and outcome.
STUDY DESIGN: Clinical report.
ANIMALS: Dog (n = 1).
METHODS: Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was used to identify a temporal lobe mass in 9-year-old, male neutered Labrador Retriever that had a 12 hour history of seizures. An approach to the temporal lobe allowed preservation of the zygomatic arch and mass removal.
RESULTS: The mass was confirmed as a cavernous hemangioma on histopathology. Repeat MR imaging at 13 months showed no recurrence of gross structural disease; however, the dog's anti-epileptic medication was administered for adequate seizure control.
CONCLUSION: Temporal lobe surgery can be performed in the dog's for the management of temporal lobe mass lesions.
