[Differential diagnosis of the porcine pituitary abscess syndrome (case report)].Dtsch Tierarztl Wochenschr. 1997 Sep; 104(9):391-3.DT
In a three years old sow, neurologic signs resulting from lesions of some cranial nerves and similar to the symptoms typical of porcine pituitary abscesses were described. A generalized leukosis with tumor cell infiltration occurring in numerous organs e.g. in the pituitary gland was diagnosed in this animal. The neurologic and pathogenetic differences between the described case and the porcine pituitary abscess syndrome were discussed.
