12 Histopathology Expansion and infiltration Round cell population Abundant cytoplasm Round vesicular nuclei Prominent multiple nucleoli Rare mitoses Anisokaryosis and anisocytosis Little intra-epithelial involvement

13 Presented at SEVPAC 2007 – Permission granted for use on SEVPAC website only Special Stains ZN and Fites acid fast stains were negative Considered cell size and plasmacytoid differentiation as indication of plasma cell tumor or lymphosarcoma Recommended immunohistochemistry

14 Presented at SEVPAC 2007 – Permission granted for use on SEVPAC website only Monoclonal CD3 Presented at SEVPAC 2007 – Permission granted for use on SEVPAC website only

15 Monoclonal CD3 Presented at SEVPAC 2007 – Permission granted for use on SEVPAC website only

16 IMHC Results CD79 did not produce staining in the avian splenic control or the intestinal infiltrate BLA.36 did not produce staining in the avian splenic control CD3 polyclonal and CD3 monoclonal stained splenic control tissue and the neoplastic cells

17 Presented at SEVPAC 2007 – Permission granted for use on SEVPAC website only Diffuse Intestinal T cell Lymphosarcoma

18 Presented at SEVPAC 2007 – Permission granted for use on SEVPAC website only Outcome Owner elected euthanasia after seven weeks of chemotherapy

21 Discussion LSA is rare in birds but typically presents as cutaneous or peri-orbital lesions Not thought to be virally induced in psittacines

22 Presented at SEVPAC 2007 – Permission granted for use on SEVPAC website only Discussion No previous reports of diffuse T cell intestinal lymphosarcoma in psittacines Prognosis is poor despite chemotherapy as with the T cell immunophenotype in mammals. Unique findings in this case included gammopathy and lymphocytic leukosis

23 Presented at SEVPAC 2007 – Permission granted for use on SEVPAC website only Monoclonal Gammopathy (Beta) Might have more strongly supported B cell origin Been reported twice before with psittacine T cell lymphosarcoma Unlikely to result from unidentified infectious etiology
