3338. A rare case of gangrenous swollen cheek in a Syrian hamster
A young lady WhatsApp this image to me.
Needle aspiration. No pus or fluid. It was possible a sharp seed had penetrated and infected the left cheek.
Diagnosis: A gangrenous infected swelling/tumour.
Overgrown lower incisor teeth suggested long duration of swelling
Hamster passed away 4 days later
