In this report, a 7 years old male Pekingese dog case is described. The dog presented for a medical investigation with a complex medullar syndrome (motility and sensitivity of the hind limb abolished). From history, we deduced that this paralysis of the hind limb was installed gradually. Clinical examination was followed by X-ray examination, which showed significant osteolysis of the L6 vertebral body. This lesion has a direct connection with the symptoms being the cause of the hind limb paralysis. Sampling of biological material by excisional biopsy and later of the histological examination of it, confirmed the presence of a malignant process, namely a fibrosarcoma of bone. It is important to point out that malignant neoplastic process of the spine have significant compressive effects on the nerve substance (spinal cord) causing clinical expression with a progressive character, from motility and sensitive mild dysfunction to its abolition.
