The Bristol Veterinary Histopath Slide Club had a late start to the year after bad weather forced the cancellation of the first meeting in March. The April meeting was held on a beautiful sunny evening yet still attracted a high attendance.
A brief list of some of the cases presented includes:
Secretory otitis media in a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
Primary rhabdomyosarcoma of bone in a dog.
An unusual case of parakeratosis in a dog that likely represents a keratinisation defect.
A labradoodle with cutaneous and renal vasculopathy syndrome.
An unusual presentation of interface dermatitis in a cat.
A glomus cell tumour in a dog.
Several cases where the cutaneous dermatopathology featured multinucleate giant cells.
A case of possible mammary carcinoma in a gelding.
