Traumatic skull fractures (TSF) are relatively frequent in dogs and cats, but little information is available regarding their clinical and imaging features.
To describe the neurological and computed tomographic (CT) features of a large cohort of dogs and cats with TSF.
Ninety?one dogs and 95 cats with TSF identified on CT.
Multicenter retrospective comparative study. Signalment, cause of trauma, fracture locations and characteristics, presence of neurological deficits, and 1?week survival were recorded. Fractures were classified according to the extent of fragmentation and displacement.
The cranial vault was affected more frequently in dogs (P = .003), whereas the face and base of the cranium more often was affected in cats (P?
