Berger, Björn; Brühschwein, Andreas; Eddicks, Lina; Meyer-Lindenberg, Andrea (2016): Malignant transformation of a unicameral bone cyst in a cat. In: Canadian Veterinary Journal-Revue Veterinaire Canadienne, Vol. 57, No. 4: pp. 377-381

A unicameral bone cyst in the proximal humerus of a 3-year-old Norwegian forest cat was diagnosed by dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging, surgical exploration, and histopathology. Surgical curettage and incorporation of bone cement led to full recovery. An osteosarcoma developed at the surgical site 17 months later. Thoracic radiographs showed pulmonary lesions consistent with metastasis.
