Abstract

<p>Abstract</p> <p>Background</p> <p>This case report describes the clinical and ultrasonographic findings in a Swiss Braunvieh cow with lymphosarcoma of the abomasum.</p> <p>Case Presentation</p> <p>The main clinical findings were vomiting in response to eating and melena. The results of serum biochemistry and rumen fluid analysis were indicative of abomasal reflux syndrome. The main ultrasonographic findings were two enlarged lymph nodes caudal to the reticulum and a severely enlarged abomasum with thickening of the abomasal wall and folds. Based on all the findings, pyloric stenosis caused by lymphosarcoma was tentatively diagnosed and later confirmed at postmortem examination.</p> <p>Conclusions</p> <p>This is an interesting case, which broadens the spectrum of abomasal reflux syndrome.</p
