Abstract

The data of 94 cases (70 dogs, 24 cats) of monoparesis/-plegia presented between June 1999 and January 2003 at the Clinic for Small Animals of the Free University Berlin are reviewed. An injury was the main reason of presentation (52 patients, 55,3%). Large and middle dogs were overrepresented (39/41). The lesion was localized to the brachial plexus in 43 patients (35 dogs, 8 cats), latrogenic injury of the sciatic nerve or its ramifications only occur after orthopedic surgery in 19 patients (20,2%). Neoplasia were diagnosed in 17 patients (18,1%). Middle aged small dogs were overrepresented (8/13). Nerve sheath tumor was the most common diagnosis (12/17), mostly localized at the brachial plexus (10/17). Neuritis in 4 dogs (4,2%) and neurofibrosis in 2 dogs (2,1%) were very seldom findings detected with biopsy.
