Ischemic myelopathy by fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE) is a syndrome characterized by an acute, and non-progressive neurologic dysfunction that affects multiple species (ZACHARY, 2013; CANTILE & YOUSSEF, 2016).
Clinical signs, gross necropsy, and histological findings observed in this case were similar to those described in the literature for ischemic myelopathy caused by FCE in horses (TAYLOR et al., 1977; FUENTEALBA et al., 1991; SEBASTIAN & GILES, 2004; WALLING et al., 2011).
Areas of hemorrhagic poliomalacia observed in the T10 to L4 spinal cord segment of this horse characterized ischemic myelopathy and is the most consistent gross finding observed in FCE in horses (FUENTEALBA et al., 1991; SEBASTIAN & GILES, 2004) and in other species (ZACHARY, 2013; CANTILE & YOUSSEF, 2016).
