A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem

A wild common dolphin was found stranded on the French Atlantic coast. At necropsy, an intracranial grey- to tan-coloured mass (7 x 5 x 4 cm) was found at the right cerebellopontine angle, compressing the right cerebellar hemisphere, the brainstem and the occipital lobe of the right cerebral hemisphere. Microscopically, the tumour was composed of small lobules of polygonal to elongated neoplastic cells with multifocal areas of stellate and vacuolated cells. Neoplastic cells strongly expressed vimentin, S-100 protein and neuron-specific enolase. They were rarely positive for cytokeratin. Ultrastructurally, the neoplastic cells displayed all the diagnostic features of meningiomas and in some areas showed long cytoplasmic processes delimiting extracellular spaces. The immunohistochemical and ultrastructural features were consistent with the histopathological diagnosis of a microcystic meningioma. This is the first report of a meningioma in dolphins or in any other cetacean species.
