The main focus of this report was the spinal cord in regard to degenerative myelopathy or lumbosacral stenosis. It appears to have been somewhat limited of an examination other regards. There is no history provided, but some of the gross findings would support the fact that there was a neurological disease present causing deficit of the behind limbs and possibly bladder function. There was not enough evidence to support either degenerative myelopathy or lumbosacral stenosis as a diagnosis. There is no histopathological evidence of inflammatory bowel disease, so the gross findings of segmental gastroenteritis, typhlitis and colitis may be related to medications used to treat the neuropathy, or may be completely incidental. Again without a history it is difficult to know. There were age-related changes in the heart, spleen and spinal cord. Nothing else of significance was noted.
