Abstract

An 11-yr-old captive-raised male woodchuck (Marmota monax) presented with ataxia, poor balance, left-sided weakness, circling to the left and nystagmus with the fast-phase directed towards the left. The clinical signs were compatible with a central vestibular deficit syndrome. Necropsy and histologic findings revealed a meningotheliomatous meningioma centered over the ventrolateral left pons and medulla along with acute bronchopneumonia, chronic glomerulopathy, interstitial nephritis, and phthisis bulbi.
